Some Eagle Pass Shelters Close After Flooding

EAGLE PASS - More than a foot of rain dumped in South Texas forced evacuations in Maverick County but the weather has eased and some shelters closed.

Emergency officials say the county received 17 inches of rain in a 24-hour period since Friday. Some families in Eagle Pass who evacuated returned to their homes by Sunday.

The National Weather Service says partly cloudy skies prevailed Sunday. The forecast for Monday was partly cloudy with highs in the upper 90s.

The city's shelter at the International Center for Trade closed Sunday afternoon. Red Cross officials say residents displaced by the recent flooding were moving to a new facility at Eagle Pass Junior High. A shelter at a community center also closed.
