DENTON (CBSDFW.COM) — Rainfall in some parts of Texas reached record levels overnight, resulting in many rivers and creeks cresting well above normal.

**9:07pm CST** According to the National Weather Service Fort Worth in Dallas, the Trinity River climbed above 40 feet Sunday night — well above its 30-foot flood stage. This means the river has hit “major flood” stage. In this stage, the city of Dallas and surrounding areas could see bridges closed, flooding, and a river the foundations of buildings in an industrial park.

Authorities have warned residents to stay away from flooding near the Trinity River.

Fort Worth also experienced its fair share of storm fallout. Check out this video from Firewheel Park:

The National Weather Service (NWS) confirmed an EF-1 tornado at about 2:30am Sunday in Farmers Branch. It came through along a five mile path at approximately 100 – 105 miles per hour.

The NWS confirmed another EF-1 tornado overnight in Irving, with winds reaching 110 miles per hour. It hit at about 2:30am; about the same time as the Farmers Branch tornado. With these two tornadoes, we’ve now had 47 confirmed tornadoes so far this year in North Texas.

Flooding hit Six Flags Over Texas off Interstate 30 in Arlington on Sunday. The park was able to open up later in the day.

In Denton County, for the first time in eight years, water is going over the spillway at Lake Lewisville.

Grand Prairie also experienced damage; winds tore off the roof of a car wash in the 1500 block of Polo Road.

In Central Texas, over 1,000 people were evacuated and an evening curfew was been imposed as fast-moving floodwaters consumed homes, sent downed power lines snaking into neighborhoods, and turned roadways into tributaries.

The National Weather Service reported Sunday that Wichita Falls, Texas, has received nearly 14 inches so far in May, making it the wettest month on record with days left to go.

In Oklahoma, the East Cache Creek — a Red River tributary that divides Oklahoma from Texas — crested Sunday at nearly 28 feet, so 6.5 feet higher than flood stage. Lake Texoma topped the spillway Sunday; only the fourth time in its history it has done that; 1957, 1990, 2007, and now 2015.
