    Blue tarps shielded a tornado damaged home in Dallas from rain. This is one of the homes where a tornado deposited a tractor-trailer from a nearby business.

    Victims with damaged homes from Tuesday’s North Texas tornados watched the rainy skies on Easter Sunday, concerned about what might come next.

    Near I-20 and Bonnie View Road, Jesse Wilmore was waiting for an insurance adjustor on Easter Sunday at his home where a truck from a nearby business landed in the tornado Tuesday.

    He watched the rain from under his carport, the one part of his home that’s still sturdy.

    It's been less than a week since tornadoes took aim at parts of Dallas, Arlington and Forney. Now, residents are eyeing a new weather threat.

    “That wind it got high man, you could see those dark clouds again. I got nervous all over,” Wilmore said. 21 “Ain’t much it could do to my house but I still was scared.”

    Wilmore’s home was virtually destroyed but neighbors with less damage hope tarps on their homes will keep the rain out.

    “I wasn’t expecting all this rain,” Wilmore said.

    Not far from his home, a part of Camp Wisdom Road was closed for a short time Sunday afternoon because of high water.

    “It was a big burst of downpour. The rain was coming so fast,” witness Mark Brooks said.

    The high water caused problems for passengers at a bus stop.

    “I saw a whole bunch of drivers just fly, and hit a couple people in the face. I’m talking just drown them out, real bad,” Witness Delbert Murphy said.

    Rain is in the North Texas forecast for much of the next week.

    “This is rain,” Jesse Wilmore said.
