Storms are expected to pound Texas with heavy rain this week and could start a new round of flooding in the state. Parts of Texas are still recovering from floods in late May that killed about 30 people and caused widespread damage. Weather officials say flash flood watches are in effect for central Texas and in the Houston area. Flooding in those regions last month turned streets into rivers, submerged thousands of vehicles and led to swollen rivers that ripped scores of houses off their foundations. Heavy rain hit parts of Texas over the weekend, pushing rivers a little closer to spilling over their banks The rivers were already high due to the previous heavy rains. In the Houston area, rain could total as much as 10 inches by Thursday.
