Disaster Relief providing food water, and shelter: Dallas - A state of disaster has been declared in Dallas County after a day of intense, deadly rainfall. High water rescues happened again and again Monday morning as many parts of North Texas received record rainfall with vehicles being left stranded. After a bone-dry summer, in one day, this became the second-wettest August on record, nearly breaking a 24-hour rain total record and triggering deadly flooding. Along 635 in Mesquite between Military and Scyene, drivers were swallowed by rising water on the freeway and the road below. Someone's dogs were trapped in their car. A man with a rope pulled them out of danger the water was up to his nose. In Southeast Dallas along Hwy 175 Denmark, one man was brought out of his house, water was over a foot. Downtown Dallas and East Dallas were hit especially hard. Fort Worth and Ellis County also saw some flash flooding. *Note* Flood water is toxic.
Support Victims and their families during this tragedy. An 18-year-old gunman opened fire at a Texas elementary school, killing at least 19 children and 2 teachers as he went from classroom to classroom, in the nation's deadliest school shooting in nearly a decade and the latest gruesome moment for a country scarred by a string of massacres. The attacker was killed by law enforcement. The assault at Robb Elementary School in the heavily Latino town of Uvalde was the deadliest shooting at a U.S. school since a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, in December 2012. Rolando Reyes, 72, the gunman's grandfather, said he had no idea his grandson had purchased two AR-15-style rifles or that they were in his house. The suspect's grandmother, who he shot in the forehead, is undergoing surgery on Wednesday. Reyes said he believes she will survive. The suspect purchased two AR-15-style rifles on May 22, two days before the massacre and six days after his birthday.
