Tuesday, May 26, 2015, 3:27 PM - At least eight people are dead after powerful storms tore through Texas, causing widespread damage and prompting evacuations.

On Tuesday, authorities spent the morning helping residents evacuate in a city near Austin, Texas, after a creek broke its banks, causing the area to flood.

A series of powerful storms hit the region over the weekend followed by as much as 280 mm of additional precipitation in some communities Monday night into Tuesday.

Highways and roads were inundated, bringing traffic to a standstill as motorists abandoned their cars.

While parts of Texas have dried out, others continue to battle flood conditions -- and there could be more rain to come.
