NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – As expected, high water is creeping into flood prone areas of North Texas.
In Dallas, there were early morning reports of minor flooding problems on Luna Road, just south of Royal Lane. Before sunrise, water was high, but moving over the roadway.
Overflow from the Trinity River also caused flooding into the Luna Vista Golf Course. A couple of inches of standing water caused little problems as truckers moved through the mostly industrial area.
North Texas has had drought conditions for some time and when rain comes after that dry weather flooding is expected.
At least 40 flights were cancelled or delayed at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. Dallas Love Field Airport reported no problems.
Oncor crews are working to restore hundreds of power outages across North Texas. In all, more than 15,000 customers are being affected. Most of the people in the dark are in Arlington, Dallas and cities north of Dallas.
A total of 3.5 inches of rain fell between July 1 and October 21. On Thursday October 23 some 2.5 inches of rain fell.
