Residents of the west Texas border town of Presidio are breathing easier as the swollen Rio Grande recedes for the second day in a row.
Presidio County Attorney Rod Ponton says the water dropped slightly Sunday. But officials have warned that a saturated levee holding back the river could fail at any time.
Presidio has been under threat of a massive flood for nearly two weeks as heavy rains have filled the normally shallow Rio Grande.
Crews are building a makeshift dam to protect against a flood from a levee break.
Ponton estimates the river will remain about 25 feet deep for at least a week. Flood stage is 9 feet
