Eagle Pass and Maverick County officials continue to assess the damage after an intense 36-hour  period of storms pummeled this stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border with 16.65 inches of rain.There are still no reports of any fatalities or anyone missing, said Maverick County Judge DavidSaucedo.But there has been no rainfall in the area for the last 24 hours, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Mark Lenz. There's a 30 percent chance of rain today. A flash floodwarning that had been in effect until midnight Sunday was cancelled at 9:42 p.m. Saturday, Lenzsaid.Officials are now consolidating all but one emergency shelter into the International Center for Trade in Eagle Pass, Saucedo said.He added a shelter will remain open about 20 miles north of Eagle Pass, in the Quemado Valleyarea, because those residents still can't leave due to heavy flooding in Elm Creek.More than 560 homes in the city and county have been affected "in some way" by the rain,Saucedo said. Eagle Pass Mayor Ramsey Cantu has said that more than 140 homes in that cityhave been destroyed."I've had the opportunity to serve this community since 1997," Saucedo said. "This is probablythe worst flooding situation that I've had to be a part of."
