McALLEN, Texas (WKOW) -- Tropical Storm Hermine has made its way to Texas, but is expected to weaken as it moves inland.

Texas is being hit hard with heavy rains and strong winds in an area that is recovering from Hurricane Alex earlier this summer. The tropical storm is threatening to dump up to one foot of rain in some areas and cause flash flooding.

Hermine hit landfall in Mexico Monday night and crossed into Texas within a few hours.  Schools on both sides of the border canceled classes for Tuesday.
