The rushing waters of the Llano river has unfortunately allowed a section of the 2900 bridge in Kingsland, Texas, to collapse sending chunks of the bridge down the Llano River, according to local reports.  Water rescues are ongoing near Kingsland and also farther west in Segovia, Texas where Flash Flood Emergencies are in effect.

Rain will continue to fall over the area today-tonight so rivers will continue to rise.  Rain will taper off by tomorrow for some areas but an additional 2-4″ can still be expected in isolated locations along and west of I-35 through Wednesday.
