After watching Texas burn up right before or eyes on television this past summer, now ... the Lone Star State is getting too much of a good thing.
A slow moving area of low pressure is dropping very heavy rain and causing widespread issues with flash flooding.
There have been numerous high water rescues this morning, including in the Dallas area.
Austin reported a new record for the date with 5.66 inches of rain. Other areas including San Antonio picked up around 3 inches.
3 to 6 inches has also fallen on the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
On the far east side of the storm, there is a threat for tornadoes in the Houston area along with the heavy rain.
