Tropical Storm Bill has dropped a lot of rain over north central Texas and south central Oklahoma after making landfall east of Corpus Christi early Tuesday.

The U.S. National Weather Service reports more than 300 mm (12.5 inches) fell in some areas up to yesterday which caused flooding when creeks and rivers spilled their banks.

Before being downgraded to a tropical depression today, strong winds from Bill also brought down trees and power lines with tens of thousands losing electricity.
