In Nacogdoches, Banita and Lanana creeks have returned within their banks, but water is rushing.

As of 9 a.m., the Deep East Texas Electric Cooperative reported 2,097 members remaining without power. At the peak of the storm, they reported just over 9,000 outages. Officials said it is difficult to estimate when power will be restored due to flooding waters, debris from fallen trees and limbs, and extremely wet ground.
