While residents in Texas are dealing with a deadly flood that has claimed several lives in the past few days, pro-Isis Twitterati have shared a sadistic take on the natural calamity.

Isis-linked Twitter accounts were seen celebrating the Texas floods as a "punishment for the Prophet cartoon contest."

At least 20 people have died in the floods in Texas as flood waters submerged much of the state.

The supporters of Islamic State, however, cheered the floods, calling it retribution for the 'Draw the Prophet' contest that was held in Garland, Texas earlier this month. 

Two gunmen had attempted to attack the Prophet cartoon contest event but were shot down by security forces. 

Isis claimed the attack, making it the first such terror attack claimed by the group in the United States. 

"Two of the soldiers of the caliphate executed an attack on an art exhibit in Garland, Texas, and this exhibit was portraying negative pictures of the Prophet Mohammed," the jihadi group had said on its official radio.

"We tell America that what is coming will be even bigger and more bitter, and that you will see the soldiers of ISIS do terrible things," Isis further warned.

One of the Texas gunmen, Elton Simpson, had pledged support to Isis and had posted a tweet before the attack, pledging allegiance to "Amirul Mu'mineen" - a reference to Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
