Many lost limbs out of trees, but not much else in our area, other than the flooding. The most significant damage was more significant damage happened north of us in Comanche County. By mid morning Sunday another round of storms came through with even more rain. At 320 N. Fifth (corner of Fifth and Iowa) the rain gauge showed over 5 inches of rain had fallen since Saturday night. When the sun came out middle of the afternoon Sunday you could find many folks out with their children playing in the low lying streets of Walters that had flooded.
