North Texas hit with more rain, flash flooding

Posted: Updated:
Wednesday brought more rain and flash flooding to parts of North Texas.

Six Flags over Texas and Hurricane Harbor both closed early due to the weather. Footage from SKY4 showed high water along the northern edge of the property of Six Flags.

Park officials said its rides will be "thoroughly inspected" before the park reopens on Thursday.

Parts of Saginaw received nearly five inches of rain in a matter of hours on Wednesday, with Trophy Club getting nearly four inches of rain.

Bailey Boswell Road at Blue Mound Road was so flooded that traffic was forced to drive at and around each other. North Saginaw Boulevard was shut down due to high water, leaving several drivers stranded.

One woman had to be rescued.

The Lake Cities Church of Christ in Trophy Club had an inch of rain leak through walls, so vacuums and fans were used.

Arlington firefighters made at least five rescues involving stranded motorists due to street flooding, an official said.

Arlington police also temporarily shut down Cooper Street at Randol Mill Road due to flooding for a brief period of time.

“It over took my hood actually,” said Ismael Sanabria, who drove into high water in Arlington. “When I got stuck, it kept raining. The water was about up to my door handle, which is relatively high, and so I was actually floating in the water.”

Streets and parks flooded in Ellis and Navarro counties, but no big evacuations were necessary.

At Community Park in Corsicana, pools of rainwater could be seen on almost every corner.

“I left the front door open for most of it and it didn't come in, but it was coming in the back door,” said Corsicana resident Mary Towles.

Parts of North Texas were placed under flash flood warnings due to the anticipated heavy rains. Some parts of Tarrant County got more than two inches of rain on Tuesday.
