Hurricane Patricia Remnants Add To Massive Flooding In Texas
Hurricane Patricia hit Mexico with less force than feared, but its remnants are adding to flash flooding across the state of Texas.
The remnants of Hurricane Patricia, one of the strongest hurricanes ever recorded, is now causing trouble in the southern portions of the U.S.
Hurricane Patricia hit Mexico Friday with a weaker punch than feared.
So far, no deaths or major damage have been reported from the record-setting hurricane in Mexico.
But Patricia's reach has extended to Texas, where it combined with another strong storm system and in some areas caused over 20 inches of rain.
Several high-water rescues were needed during the flash flooding. Many streets, and a major highway, had to be shut down.
The flood waters were even strong enough to wash away train tracks, derailing a train in Navarro County. (Video via KTVT/CNN)
