(Newser) – Texas has Noah beat, with 44 days of near continuous rain. For the first time in 50 years all five major rivers  – the Brazos, Colorado, Nueces, Red, and Trinity are at flood stage.  State and federal governments are at the ready.  And they now have the heavy hitters – Wal-Mart and Home Depot – to help them.

Thirteen people have died, five are missing and over 1000 homes have been flooded so far.
