The Llano County Office of Emergency Management is warning residents of hazardous conditions, especially on the roads, and officials told residents to stay off the road if they could.

Last week, four people were swept away in floodwaters along the South Llano River in Junction. The body was found at Flag Street and Sandstone Street, according to KVUE.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott declared a state of disaster in 18 flood-stricken counties in Central and South Texas late Tuesday as severe weather and prolonged flooding continued to wreak havoc on the state.

The LCRA has closed lakes Travis, Marble Falls, LBJ, Inks, and Buchanan, News4SA reported.

Video shows the bloated Llano River overrunning a bridge in Kingsland, about 65 miles northwest of Austin. "That rise is expected to be perhaps at least as great and maybe even a little bit more than what we saw early this morning, meaning somewhere between 38 and 40, are the best estimates that we have right now".

The river isn't expected to drop below major flood stage until Wednesday.

And, it’s important to account for the time and effort spent by administrative staff handling these denied claims. They also have the potential to adversely affect patients’ opinions about the organization.

Water levels on the Llano River were quickly dropping early Wednesday after it soared above flood stage this week and destroyed a bridge.

The Llano River's crest of 39.91 feet in Llano was just below the record high of 41.5 feet there in June 1935. A bridge in Llano County collapsed, underscoring the danger of the historic flooding.

The lake is situated where the Llano (LA'-noh) and Colorado rivers meet.

Fire officials in Austin have temporarily banned all boating along the city's waterways as heavy rain and flooding create unsafe conditions.

Flood warnings were issued for areas north of Houston, and the Fort Worth Fire Department said it responded to some 80 traffic accidents blamed on slick roads and poor visibility Tuesday morning.

Forecasts suggest the sustained rains could continue over the next two days.
