Transcript for At least 4 dead as torrential rain, flash floods hit South
Now to those storms slamming the south. At least four people have died by heavy rains, flash floods stretching from Texas to Mississippi. Rob is tracking that for us this morning. Good morning, rob. It has been such a tough week in the south central U.S. Several rounds of torrential rain, in some cases over a foot falling. There's been hundreds of high water rescues and rain continues to come down this morning. Overnight in Arkansas, rising floodwaters trapping residents and drivers just southwest of Little Rock. Crews rushing in to evacuate at least a dozen stranded. This is by far the worst we've ever seen it. Reporter: In Houston, drivers dangerously inching along this flooded highway. High water sweeping away this car. And fierce winds uprooting this tree dumping it right into a home. In Louisiana, the banks of this river overflowing, cars and trailers submerged. Widespread flooding covering this entire neighborhood as residents wade through knee-deep water salvaging what's left behind. The back-to-back storms pummeling several states for days leave ago at least four people dead in the afterat including one in Baton Rouge found in a submerged car. We are trying to get a shift in this weather pattern but it's going to come slowly. Let's take a look. We still have flash flood watches that are posted for the same area, Little Rock through Houston. East into parts of lake Charlize Theron where they saw nearly 18 inches of rain fall earlier in the week and radar is active and as far as the next round of severe weather goes, this may shake up the pattern coming out of the rockies but it will bring a threat for severe weather today in the form of damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes through the black hills of South Dakota, rapid city under the gun there. So much activity out there. All right, thank you.
