DALLAS (AP) -- Parts of Texas have been getting soaked as rain and cooler temperatures reach the state in a soggy end to summer.

Oncor reported about 7,500 customers without electricity Friday, compared to four times that number overnight as storms reached North Texas. Most outages are in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Classes at Rockwall-Heath High School were canceled Friday due to no electricity.

Arlington firefighters used a ladder truck to rescue several motorists whose vehicles stopped in high water. Waco police reported flooded roads and some stalled vehicles. Odessa also had street flooding.

The National Weather Service reported scattered showers in the Corpus Christi area and far South Texas.

Emergency management officials in the Houston area warned of possible widespread heavy rain late Friday and potential for flooding.

Autumn begins Sunday.
