Here in the Gateway City a seldom sight, rain fall on and off pretty much since students got out for Summer break. Friday and Saturday about 1 and a half inches of rainfall. But, look at this, 16 inches falling down over Eagle Pass in just 36 hours. My San Antonio, reporting that 140 homes are destroyed. All this rain over flowing the Amistad Damn causing down stream flooding of the Rio Grande. again. City officials asking people to stay away from the river, until the flood warning is called off.
