A storm system will be moving through the region Wednesday and into Thursday that could bring much needed rain to the area.
As of Oct. 22, most of the region is in a moderate drought with much of Lamar county remaining under extreme drought conditions.
While the rain will be beneficial to the region in many ways, it will also cause major problems. The system is expected to move in Wednesday afternoon and will be in the region through Thursday. In this time period, Northeast Texas could see up to four inches of rainfall.

In a peaceful, wooded corner of Bastrop County, Texas, sits one of the unluckiest dams in the state.

Water poured over the structure and wreaked havoc on an already crumbling spillway.
