Torrential rains have already given Texas the wettest month on record, according to Texas A&M climatologists. And extreme river and creek flooding has broken many records, flooding streets and sweeping away hundreds of homes.
Authorities were afraid that the Padera dam, a large dam about 40 km southwest of Dallas, would collaps because of the enormous amounts of water. This danger has been gone now.
Also, neighboring Oklahoma State sighs under the continuing storm.
