Severe Flash Flooding in Dallas Area after a Summer of Drought

Severe Flash Flooding in Dallas Area after a Summer of Drought

Following rainstorms that flooded streets and homes in northeastern Texas, rescue crews fanned out across the region on Monday, responding to hundreds of calls for help from residents stunned by the severity of the downpour. According to the National Weather Service Forth Worth, heavy rain and flash flooding brought record rainfall to the Dallas-Forth Worth area between Sunday and Monday afternoon. Over a 24-hour period beginning Sunday, more than 9 inches of rain fell at Dallas Forth Worth Airport, the area’s highest rainfall total since 1932. The major flood threat in the area will begin to fade on Tuesday as the storms move eastward toward Louisiana and Mississippi, though parts of eastern and southeastern Texas are still at risk of heavy rain on Tuesday.
