...The previous record for total rainfall during a tropical cyclone 
has been broken...

A preliminary report from one Texas rain gauge has broken the Texas
tropical cyclone rainfall record. Southeast of Houston, Mary's Creek 
at Winding Road reported 49.20 inches in a time period ranging from 
12:00 AM CDT August 25 to 9:20 AM CDT August 29. This total is 
higher than the previous record of 48 inches set during tropical 
cyclone Amelia in 1978 at Medina, Texas. This is a preliminary 
report and could potentially increase.
