across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... farm and country roads... as well as farmland
along the banks of creeks and streams. Do not attempt to travel

854 PM CDT Mon may 25 2015

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 1 am CDT Tuesday...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of south central Texas... including the following
areas... Bastrop... Caldwell... De Witt... Fayette... Gonzales...
Guadalupe... Karnes... Lavaca... Lee and Wilson.

* Until 1 am CDT Tuesday

* showers and thunderstorms are producing locally heavy rainfall
across south central Texas... causing up to 2 inches of rain per
hour in the coastal plains. The heavy rainfall threat will
gradually end from west to east this evening. Rainfall totals of
1 to 3 inches are expected.

* Due to the very moist conditions of the grounds and soils in the
area and large amount of runoff from upstream rainfall... rapid
flash flooding of low water crossings and some roadways will be
possible where heavy rains develop. Area rivers and streams are
also out of banks or in flood. Some of these rivers and streams
will reach their flood stages very quickly.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means flash flooding is possible in or near
the watch area. If you are in the watch area... plan now for what
you will do if flash flooding develops. Stay informed and be
ready to act if you see flooding or if a Flash Flood Warning is
issued.

Do not drive into flooded roadways. Some roadways... low water
crossings... and bridges may be inundated or overtopped. If you
see water flowing over a roadway... do not try to pass! Remember...
turn around... dont drown.
