Truck Driver Stranded by High Water in Maryland

Heavy rains caused flash flooding in areas of north Texas, shutting down I-35 in Cooke County.

The interstate was shut down from mile marker 491 to the Denton County Line, the Weather Channel reported.

Several motorists were trapped by the flash flooding and some motorists had to be rescued.

By 7:30 a.m., nearly 11 inches of rain had called.

“Flash flood watches stretched from the panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma to Arkansas, including much of the Red River Valley currently in extreme to exceptional drought,” the Weather Channel reported.

The slow-moving system is expected to hit Dallas-Ft.Worth from the west. Things might get a little hairy in Dallas around rush hour, this afternoon.
