CORPUS CHRISTI -

Naval Air Station Corpus Christi wasn't immune to all the flooding from last night's heavy downpour.

Dozens of Navy aircraft used for training were lashed to the flight line as the winds and water came rushing in from Corpus Christi Bay.

Crews will now need to closely inspect 38 of the T-6 aircraft for potential damage to the landing gear, electronics and fuselage.

There were no flights out of the air station on Tuesday. The Navy hopes to be back in the air on Wednesday with the resumption of training flights.
