Flooding triggered by heavy rainfall prompted water rescues and evacuations, sparked fires, closed roads and knocked out power to thousands in San Antonio, Texas, on Monday.

Some locations saw 4 to 5 inches of rain from the storms in a few hours, according to weather.com meteorologist Chris Dolce.
