Storm Leaves Street Flooding, Downed Tree Limbs, But no Serious Issues

The National Weather Service says the worst of the major frontal system which rumbled through the San Antonio area overnight has moved on, leaving behind wet streets, some downed tree limbs and power lines, but no reports of hail, tornadoes, or damaging winds, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

The NWS reported a wind gust of 52 mph at the Airport, and several neighborhoods say leaves and tree limbs down on streets.

Parts of the city received drenching rains, with nine low water crossings barricaded, mainly places that 'always flood,' including Leslie Road at Loop 1604 and Vance Jackson south of Huebner.

There were scattered reports of power lines down, but CPS Energy reports fewer than 200 customers without power.

A traffic accident at Zarzamora and Culebra on the west side which sent a police officer to the hosptial was blamed on heavy rain.

Today's forecast calls for sunshine and highs in the seventies, although there will be gusty winds around the area for the rest of the day.
