Severe weather tears through north Texas Sunday morning

Severe weather caused several issues in north Texas early Sunday morning.

A tornado warning was issued for southeast portions of Denton County until 7:15 a.m. but it was canceled before that time.

Now, the concern in several areas is flooding. As of 9:15 a.m., 26,000 Oncor customers were without power.

There are reports of damage due to the weather in Grapevine and Lewisville. Power lines were knocked down in Lewisville. Firefighters blocked roads so repair crews could make repairs. Several roads in Fort Worth were closed Sunday morning due to high water, according to Fort Worth Police.

A creek in Johnson County rose a foot in two minutes according Johnson County Emergency Management.

A Fox 4 viewer also reported a train derailment north of Bonds Ranch, where there were high winds Sunday morning. 

The Red Cross is helping residents in Rhome in Wise County and in Cisco, where one person was killed Saturday, said Anita Foster with the Red Cross.

Red Cross volunteers are also heading out to other areas in north Texas to see if others need help.
