Tropical Storm Hermine came ashore in northeast Mexico last night and is moving across the Rio Grande into southern Texas, bringing drenching rains in south Texas cities like Brownsville, Harlingen and McAllen. Power was lost in at least 30,000 homes.
Hermine, now downgraded to a tropical depression, is expected to bring up to a foot of rainfall to some areas already pummeled by Hurricane Alex in June. North Texas is also due to see heavy overnight and Wednesday and the National Weather Service has posted a Flash Flood Watch for North Texas through Thursday.
