Severe thunderstorms hit North Texas on April 23 and 24, 2019, flooding roadways and causing power outages across the region.

Dallas Love Field received 83.8 mm (3.3 inches) of rain overnight, flooding the lower levels of the airport's garages and reaching the roofs of some cars. During the same period, Carrolton, The Colony and Farmers Branch recorded up to 101.6 mm (4 inches) of rain.

Dallas' director of aviation said the flooding was caused by a stormwater outflow that's too narrow to handle that much water in a short time.

While terminals at the airport were not affected, about 60 flights had been canceled along with at least 24 at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

Some 28 000 customers were affected by power outages.

A threat for strong to severe thunderstorms with additional heavy rainfall and localized flooding remains into tonight across central and eastern Texas, NWS warns.

The threat for severe thunderstorms and heavy rainfall will move to the central Gulf Coast on Thursday, April 25.

Meanwhile, temperatures throughout much of the country will be very warm, especially over the Desert Southwest, where records are possible.
