I watched the radar last night and it looked like the del Carmen and Madera got a good soaking as the major storms traveled to the north east just south of the Rio Grande.

Go here and then click on Texas Radar:

I'm sure there are better links but this one shows pretty good detail

Rained for two solid hours night before last at NE4. Judging from all the standing water at RGV yesterday, looks like it rained there too.
