The weather may be quiet now, but that wasn't the case late last night and early this morning. 

There was flooding in some areas of the Valley overnight as storms fired up from the North and West, meeting to create one big line of showers and thunderstorms. 

According to the Doppler estimated rainfall amounts, Los Fresnos saw four inches of rain. The city was where one of the last severe thunderstorm warnings of the night was issued.
