CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A helicopter tour is providing an aerial view of the damaged left behind by Hurricane Hanna.
Southern Texas suffered flooding and damage in Hurricane Hanna, with heavy rain still forecast for Monday. A serious flood risk remains throughout the Coastal Bend and the Rio Grande Valley.
Flash flood watches have been issued by the National Weather Service for all of South Texas and the middle Texas Coast.
Hurricane Hanna weakened to a tropical storm after making landfall along southern Texas's Gulf Coast on Saturday evening, bringing heavy rains and threats of flooding to parts of the state already reeling from the coronavirus pandemic.
Hurricane Hanna quickly pushed inland overnight, leaving flooding and damage in its path. The Category 1 storm made landfall at 5 p.m. Saturday at Padre Island with sustained winds of 90 mph.
Officials say the elderly couple and the boat owner would not have survived if they had not been rescued, as the sailboat was breaking apart.
