Texas Drenched by Persistent Drizzle

Texas has been drenched by a steady stream of rainfall, which is not expected to completely subside until Sunday. In over an 18 hour period, the deluge has produced 3-4 inches and flash flooding in some areas, with the encrusted earth lacking the absorbency to sponge-up the moisture fast enough.

It is hoped that the rain will quench the parched Texas landscape, still recovering from record rainlessness. While the precipitation may provide short-term drought relief, long term prospects remain uncertain.

In the Midland/Odessa area, flash flooding led to more than 100 high-water rescues, with 120 people rescued from vehicles. The Star-Telegram quotes Midland city spokeswoman Persephone Dakopolos as saying, “It’s been consistent. Here in West Texas we don’t see this much rain, so it’s been kind of an inundation.” The rain is expected to move off to the east in the next few days.
