    Texas, Houston and San Marcos will share more than $142 million in federal grants for recovery from devastating 2015 storms.

    The Department of Housing and Urban Development on Monday cited spring flooding and remnants of Hurricane Patricia, which hit last fall.

    A HUD statement Monday said Texas had significantly higher unmet needs than jurisdictions impacted by other eligible disasters last year.

    Texas gets nearly $51 million.

    Houston will receive nearly $67 million. The area, over Memorial Day weekend, received up to 15 inches of rain. Thousands of homes flooded and three people died. Late-October floods and tornadoes left two people dead.

    San Marcos, 30 miles south of Austin, will receive more than $25 million after Memorial Day weekend storms destroyed roads, bridges and homes. More than two dozen people died.
