I'm east of Dallas and we're under a tornado and flash flood watch until 2 am. That's not unusual for this time of year though. I just checked the map and there is a nasty, huge storm plowing through Dallas right now and heading our way. Batten down the hatches!

Right Historically, San Anton does not have storm drains, the streets are designed for that function.

Update on San Antonio storms 1:29 AM
Second round here. (the first fizzled by the time it got to NW SA). High, high winds, heavy rain (no hail that I can tell), very scary lightning (I've been in several tropical storms/ depressions. This is pretty bad. We have the dogs in the back hall, but I can see out a kitchen window & the sky is intermittently bright red. Not sure why.
Street lights/ electric/ cable still up.
The tornado watch for our area has expired.
Best current radar imo
