A summerlike pattern continues to bring the threat of flooding to parts of the South and mid-Mississippi Valley to start the workweek.
Relentless rain continues to batter the central U.S. after a week of continuous storms for parts of the South.
On Sunday, a low-pressure system moved northward from the Gulf of Mexico, bringing heavy rain and thunderstorms across the Lone Star State. This comes after several inches of rain fell across the San Antonio area from Friday night into Saturday, flooding roads in the region, including parts of Interstate 35.
Firefighters in San Antonio had to rescue three people trapped inside their car after driving onto a flooded road, and at least one woman was able to free herself after becoming trapped.
"I was going down the road, and all of a sudden, the water started coming up on me," Lisa Contreras said. "I got scared, and I was scared that I was going to die in my car, so I got out of the car and walked out. There were no barricades or nothing at all."
The relentless heavy rain has prompted the National Weather Service to issue Flood Watches from the Houston metro southward through Bay City and Rockport, with Flood Warnings also being issued across portions of southeastern Texas.
More flash flood alerts were issued in Missouri and Illinois as severe storms brought copious amounts of rain in a short period of time.
On Monday, South Texas, including the San Antonio and Corpus Christi areas, are again at risk of flash flooding, while areas of the mid-Mississippi Valley will also see a higher risk.
