Heavy Rain Causes Flooding In Commerce

COMMERCE (DFWCOM.COM) – Heavy rain is causing significant flooding problems in the small city of Commerce, Texas.

Streets have flooded and a handful of houses have water rushing through them on the south side of town.

Police say one woman called to report several inches of water racing into her home.

Heavy rain also caused a massive power outage , also on the south side of town, affecting two elementary schools.

Parents were told they could pick up their children early from Commerce and AC Williams Elementary, once the power went out shortly after 1 p.m. The remaining children were kept in their classrooms.

Buses were scheduled to run on time, but parents were warned the routes could take longer than normal due to flooded roads.
