DALLAS — Parts of Texas have been getting soaked as rain and cooler temperatures reach the state in a soggy end to summer.

The National Weather Service predicted the rain would ease across most of the state Saturday, except for in South Texas and along the Gulf Coast. No major damage or injuries had been reported as of Friday night, though flooding of some intersections stalled cars.

Corsicana reported almost 7 inches of rain Friday, while Dallas and Waco reported about 3 inches and Fort Worth reported about 2 inches. In some areas, persistent rain prompted high school football games to be canceled.

Arlington firefighters used a ladder truck to rescue several motorists whose vehicles stopped in high water. Waco police reported flooded roads and some stalled vehicles. Austin and Odessa also had street flooding.

Oncor reported about 100 customers without electricity Friday evening.
