Tropical Storm Nicholas is expected to dump six to 12 inches of rain in parts of Texas and Louisiana. The main threat to property damage will be flooding.

The storm made landfall as a category one hurricane Tuesday morning near Sargent Beach with wind speeds of 75 miles per hour.

According to CNN, 130,000 people have lost power in Texas. Nicholas will move into Louisiana later Tuesday.
