DALLAS (AP) - While some flood worries persist in Texas, much of the state is looking forward to sunshine today, along with a chance for swollen rivers to recede.

Emergency-management officials are turning their attention to cleanup efforts in such places as Houston, where damage estimates top $45 million. Much of the state is expected to be sunny all week.

Authorities in Dallas County say they are monitoring flooding in Dallas, Carrollton and Irving, among other cities, as well as an unincorporated area.

The statement says some streets in Dallas have been closed and floodwaters in some areas were stranding vehicles. It also says residents of about 20-25 mobile homes in an unincorporated area have been asked to evacuate.

The statement warns that Monday morning commuter traffic could be affected.
