North Texas roadways quickly began to flood this morning after heavy rain overnight.
Rushing water along I-35 caused traffic to come to a complete stop in some areas. The trouble started early this morning when I-35 in Sanger was shut down due to dangerous flash floods, stranding dozens of drivers.
First responders have said the conditions are extremely dangerous. 11 inches of water hit Valley View and Sanger this morning. Cooke County officials say 25 drivers got stuck in the water and firefighters and police had to perform 10 high-water rescues.
Reports of 3 to as much as 8 inches of rain has been measured across Cooke, Denton and Wise counties.
