NORTH TEXAS - Well, the sun is out, there's no rain in the forecast, and in some parts of the Metroplex, things are starting to dry up.

But that's not the case at Luna Vista Golf Course.  The overflowing Trinity River has turned the course into one big water hazard!

It also led to "reverse 911 calls", warning neighboring businesses that the floods were a-comin'.  More than a dozen roads were closed, including Northwest Highway at Loop 12.

In Coppell, more than 100 residents at the Wellington Place apartment complex evacuated to escape rising water.

The Red Cross must have a sense of humor. They set up a shelter for folks displaced by the flood in an aquatics center.

Flooding has also forced folks in Seagoville out of their homes.

On the other hand, baseball games at Dallas Baptist University were played on schedule, after they used a helicopter as a giant blowdryer to clear water from the field.

It's gonna take more than a helicopter to clear the waters elsewhere though...

Yeah, this was the wettest May ever. Here's hoping the worst is behind us.
