Patricia remnants cause flooding in Texas

Parts of Texas have seen up to 20 inches of rain so far as two storm systems continue to move through the state Sunday, CNN reports. The remnants of tropical depression Patricia, which was once a Category 5 hurricane, contributed to flash flooding in southeastern Texas.

There are reportedly no confirmed deaths from the flooding so far, but one man is considered missing, motorists were stranded, and a freight train derailed, Reuters reports. About 100 flights at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport were cancelled Saturday.

Although Texas has experienced severe drought for much of the year, this is the second time since May the state has seen extreme rainfall.
