Rain Causes Severe Flooding Across Central Texas

Local

Storms caused heavy flooding in several areas across Central Texas on Wednesday.

Officials are reminding people that if you see low water crossings – Turn Around, Don’t Drown.

Despite strong warnings, one man says he knows the neighborhood and is willing to take the risk.

“I been here 30 years, and right now it’s not too high to cross it,” says Ed Harrell, a long time resident of the China Spring area.

As a result of the frequent severe weather, Governor Greg Abbott issued standby resources across the state.

Supplies include:

  •  19 Water rescue boats
  •  Helicopters
  •  8 Ambulances
  •  8 Medical incident support teams

The Department of Insurance says families should create a home inventory by making a list and taking photos and videos of their belongings.
