No one complained about locally heavy rain Erath County and much of North Texas received Saturday.

The storm that rolled through the area Thursday night was a soaker - dumping more than five inches of rain in Stephenville, and prompting county officials to lift the burn ban.

"Stephenville officially received 5.61 inches Saturday," according to local weather watcher Dr. Stuart Chilton. "It was the best 24-hour total for Stephenville since October 8, 2011, when 6.11 inches were recorded." 

Average September rainfall for Stephenville is 3.60 inches making Stephenville 2.68 inches above the September average.   

Residents reported locally heavy rain on the Empire-Tribune's Facebook page Friday.

Red Williams-Claunch said Iredell has received 2.5 inches and Belinda Echeverria reported the same amount in the Harbin community.

"Our rain gauge stops at 5" and it was overflowing on Pilot Knob Road," said Sarah Douglass.

North Texas isn't the only area receiving much-needed rain.

Brooke Gorman said Midland has received an inch as of Friday morning.

"And Midland never gets rain!" she said. "It's been nice!"
