    High Water at Rush Creek

    In Arlington, heavy rain has led to flooding in several parts of the city, including the Rush Creek neighborhood near Pioneer Parkway and Green Oaks Blvd.

    Multiple neighborhood streets in that area are blocked off by barricades as the creek continues to rise out of its bed and onto the roadways.

    This is a known floodplain in Arlington.

    Following severe flooding there in 2010, which resulted in numerous rescues and multiple homes being damaged, the city purchased nearly 50 homes along the creek bed and demolished them in hopes of avoiding a repeat scenario.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
