    (Reuters) - Tropical Storm Beta was predicted to bring a foot of rain to parts of coastal Texas and Louisiana next week as the 24th named storm of this year's Atlantic hurricane season moves ashore on Monday night, the National Hurricane Center said. Forecasters warned on Sunday that coastal communities could be inundated with floods and see sustained winds of 60 miles per hour (95 km per hour), though the storm is expected to weaken as it moves inland. Slow-moving storms that deluge coasts are becoming a regular occurrence, a development that scientists attribute to climate change. This month marks only the second time in history that the sheer number of storms has forced forecasters to turn to the Greek...
    Hurricane Sally strengthened to a Category 2 storm with 105 mph winds early Wednesday morning as it continued to crawl toward the northern Gulf Coast.

    NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – After about a three week hiatus from rain, North Texas saw a soggy pattern in these first few official days of summer. Another storm complex raced in overnight from the Texas panhandle, providing gusty winds up to 50 mph, frequent lightning, and torrential rainfall. As storms moved into North Texas before daybreak, the system slowed down, giving storms plenty of time to tap into rich tropical-like moisture. In some cases, 3-4″ of rain fell in a matter of just a couple of hours. Places like Wise County experienced some of the heaviest rain with amounts pushing 4″. This created a flash flood threat that lasted through the morning commute. Local grounds were already saturated before this...
