Photos & Videos: TX Hit Hard by Flood Waters– More Expected
May has already been the wettest month in history for the states of Oklahoma and Texas.
Individual cities like Dallas, TX have not only had the wettest May, but the second wettest Spring. The only year to have a wetter first five months was 1957. If Dallas receives another 0.88″ of rain in the next three days, 2015 will be the wettest start to any year on record in Dallas area.
The current forecast is calling for well over an inch in the Dallas Fort Worth area over the next three days. The area can most likely expect the all time record to be topped off by Sunday.
The Trinity River in Dallas was at 41.58 feet as of 2 p.m. on Friday and expected to rise to 43 feet by Saturday morning. The 1989 record level was 43.31 feet.
