Heavy Rain Causes Flooding In Corpus Christi

CORPUS CHRISTI (September 9, 2013)--Heavy rain drenched parts of South Texas and flooded some streets with enough water for boating.

The National Weather Service say parts of Corpus Christi received as much as 4 inches of rain Sunday and isolated showers continued Monday with a good chance of rain for several days.

A tropical depression that started Friday in the Bay of Campeche dissipated Saturday.

Some Texas A&M-Corpus Christi students took to kayaks Sunday in flooded parking lots.

The area remains in an extreme drought, but the weekend rainfall helped.

Corpus Christi's typically wettest month is September, during which an average of about 5 inches of rain typically falls.

AEP Texas had about 4,400 outages in the Corpus Christi area but most power was restored by Sunday night.
