CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) Heavy rain has drenched parts of drought-recovering South Texas and flooded some streets with enough water for boating.
The National Weather Service say parts of Corpus Christi received up to 4 inches of rain Sunday. Forecaster Jason Runyen says isolated showers continued Monday with a good chance of rain for several days.
A tropical depression that started Friday in the Bay of Campeche dissipated Saturday.
The Corpus Christi Caller-Times (http://bit.ly/17KSrBv ) reports some Texas A&M-Corpus Christi students took to kayaks Sunday in flooded parking lots.
Runyen says the area remains in an extreme drought but the weekend rainfall helped. Corpus Christi's typically wettest month is September with about 5 inches of rain.
AEP Texas had about 4,400 outages in the Corpus Christi area but most power was restored by Sunday night.
