The National Weather Service issued a new flash flood warning Thursday morning for large parts of Texas, as the state reels from extreme flooding that has already killed 17 people.
The new flood warning covers southern and central Texas from around San Antonio to Dallas and remains in effect until Friday morning. “This area is already saturated from recent rounds of heavy rain and will be susceptible to flash flooding… even with just short periods of rain,” the warning said.
At least 17 people have been killed by the severe weather in Texas so far this week. The storms have also damaged buildings, submerged cars and flooded major Texas cities Houston and Austin.
