imelda

KAUFMAN COUNTY, Texas — Showers and isolated thunderstorms are expected to bring heavy rain to portions of Northeast Texas as Tropical Depression Imelda continues moving north, northeast.

The impacts will primarily be east of the I-35 corridor tonight and northeast of a line from Bowie, to DFW, to Palestine into Friday.

Locally heavy rain is the main threat with these storms, which produced a new record daily maximum rainfall in the City of Houston at 9.18 inches, beating the previous record of 6.92 inches set in 1979 — Imelda itself dropped over 40 inches of rain over the region, making it one of the wettest tropical storms in U.S. history.
