Residents of Beaumont, Texas, were struggling with widespread flooding on September 19, after a deluge from Tropical Storm Imelda. One local boy, however, appeared unfazed by it all, as he pulled some expert dance moves in his inundated house.
The National Weather Service estimated Imelda could bring between 30 and 40 inches of rain through Friday, September 20, to many areas in eastern Texas.
Gov Greg Abbott declared a state of disaster for 13 counties in southeast Texas due to flooding on roads, the potential for major infrastructure damage, and power outages, according to a report from 12 News.
