Flooding is occurring as rain continues across south and central Texas, prompting one district to send students home early and a Wilson County road to be closed to traffic.

The threat of flooding prompted the Nixon-Smiley Consolidated Independent School District to close schools early today. Dr. Cathy Lauer, district superintendent, advised this was a precautionary measure to allow buses to safely transport students home in case the continued rainfall caused flooding in outlying areas. A decision about whether classes will be canceled tomorrow will be made later tonight or in the morning, Lauer said, as weather conditions are monitored.

Flooding concerns also have closed F.M. 537 at the Cibolo Creek in southern Wilson County to traffic.

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch until 10 p.m. tonight for Atascosa, Bandera, Bastrop, Bexar, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Comal, DeWitt, Dimmit, Edwards, Fayette, Frio, Gillespie, Gonzales, Guadalupe, Hays, Karnes, Kendall, Kerr, Kinney, Lavaca, Lee, Llano, Maverick, Medina, Real, Travis, Uvalde, Val Verde, Williamson, Wilson, and Zavala counties.

Do not drive vehicles through flooded areas. Remember, 18 inches of water or less can carry away most vehicles, including trucks. If you see floodwaters or come upon a flooded roadway, remember to turn around, don’t drown. For the latest river stages and forecasts, visit
