30 Oct 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

In 3 hours, at least 4 inches of rain in Travis, Hays counties.

“I’m standing in front of the post office in downtown D’Hannis Texas–and there’s been considerable damage to the downtown area–the buildings, and the businesses” said Medina County Sheriff Randy Brown. Friday. 8:10 a.m. update: The threat of strong straight line winds continues in and around San Marcos, the National Weather Service said, but tornado circulation is “not as impressive” and may be weakening. Flash flooding is expected to begin shortly, and significant rises are expected to begin moving down the Blanco River, Onion Creek and Barton Creek, the service said.

As a thunderstorm moves through Austin, Dripping Springs has already seen 2.72 inches of rain in the past hour, the Lower Colorado River Authority is reporting. Earlier: Austin is under a flash flood watch until 10 a.m. while a front moves through the city, and Hays and Blanco counties are under the more threatening flash flood warning until 9 a.m. Any tornado threat would diminish by nightfall, forecasters say, as the line of storms moves east across Central Texas late Friday and into early Saturday morning.
