This is how people “walk” on street after Texas Flood.
Texas has picked up a statewide average of 7.54 inches so far in May, crushing the previous record wet month of June 2004 during which a statewide average of 6.66 inches of rain fell, according to the Office of the State Climatologist at Texas A&M University.
Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas – 16.96 inches of rain has fallen through 9:00 a.m. CDT May 30 at DFW International Airport, smashing the old May record of 13.66 inches in 1982.
The wettest month on record in the DFW metro is 17.64 inches in April 1922. This is the single wettest month in the Metroplex since April 1942 — 16.97 inches.
It is also the second wettest spring (March through May) on record with 25.04 inches so far. The current record is 29.01 inches set in 1957.
As torrential rains soaked North Texas again on Thursday and early Friday morning, several Plano parks, roadways and residents were affected by flood waters.
