Friday, May 29, 2015, 9:38 - More than 20 people are dead after powerful storms tore through Texas and Oklahoma, 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 Memorial Day weekend followed by as much as 11 inches 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.
