After Lake Worth reached its overflow point Thursday morning, water flowing through Airfield Falls Park in Fort Worth caused the waterfall within the park to fill up and put on a show.

Lake Worth filled up and spilled over at about 10:30 this morning, according to the National Weather Service.

The water flowed through Airfield Falls Trailhead and Conservation Park near the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in west Fort Worth, filling up the creek running through the park and causing the waterfall to fill up, splash and roar.

The lake is one of many area waterways that has been swollen by the North Texas region’s wettest autumn on record.

The lake spills over but does not create flooding at 594 feet, according to the weather service. Lake Worth reached 594.8 feet this morning.

The lake must reach at least 598.5 feet before nearby houses will be affected, officials say.

Waste water pushes up a manhole cover near the intersection of Berry Street and Glen Garden Drive in south Fort Worth. A spokewoman for the water department said this is caused by heavy rain entering the public sewage system through cracks.

Cars splashed through rainwater pooled at the entrance of the Northpark Y at 9100 N. Beach Street in north Fort Worth after heavy rains Saturday day morning.

Water rushes in a gully in the Summer Creek area. The rain won’t be going away any time soon in the Fort Worth area, according to the National Weather Service. Residents should watch out for flooding, lightning and up to eight inches of rain.
