TD Bill Brings Flash Flood Warnings, Watches to North Texas

A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for North Texas until Thursday evening as Tropical Depression Bill moves through the Lone Star State. [[273173921,C]]

Bill made landfall as a tropical storm on Matagorda Island at about 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, but the system gradually weakened into a tropical depression as it moved toward DFW.


Rainfall totals of 2 to 5 inches were common across North Texas Wednesday, with isolated areas seeing up to 9 inches. Flooding is anticipated as lakes and rivers are still recovering from our last flooding event.

Missing Attachment TODAY Show meteorologist Al Roker joins NBC 5 live from Dallas where he discusses the heavy rain caused by Tropical Depression Bill.

"We're more vulnerable to flooding right now than usual because we just got through the wettest month on record," Texas climatologist John Nielsen-Gammon said.[[307838301,C]]

As of about 10 p.m., Oncor reported 2,316 outages in Tarrant County and 2,195 power outages in Dallas County.
