Southern Texas Still Under Flood Warning

SAN ANTONIO (AP) _ Flood warnings were in effect Tuesday for part of southern Texas and rivers remained high in the central part of the state following heavy rain, the National Weather Service said.

As much as 17 inches of rain fell during the weekend, causing flooding that destroyed several houses.

The warnings in effect Tuesday covered the Aransas River in three counties north of Corpus Christi, but only minor flooding was expected, the weather service said.

Several Central Texas rivers also were either near flood stage or expected to reach that level through Thursday, the weather service said. Flooding was possible in the Nueces and Guadalupe river basins later this week, according to forecasts.

Medina County saw the heaviest rain and worst flooding Saturday, especially along Seco Creek, which flows through D'Hanis.

Medina County Sheriff Randy Brown said he believed more than a dozen homes were destroyed by the flooding. No injuries were reported, but as many as 90 people sought emergency shelter, he said.

A Boy Scout troop had to flee a campsite along the rapidly rising Guadalupe River on Saturday, and an Amtrak train was halted by water on the tracks about 75 miles west of San Antonio.
