GRANBURY, Texas (AP) Storms have dumped more than 7 inches of rain in a North Texas county where some roads and the Brazos (BRAZ'-uhs) River flooded amid the deluge.

The Hood County Sheriff's Office on Monday had no immediate reports of anyone hurt in Granbury, about 30 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

The National Weather Service reports the Granbury area received 7.36 inches of rain on Sunday. Forecaster Dennis Cavanaugh on Monday said the area prior to the storm had recorded only about 7 inches of rain all year.

Cavanaugh says the Wichita Falls area had brief storms early Monday. Rain also reached the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Electric provider Oncor (ON'-kor) reports nearly 11,000 homes and businesses without power.
