Flood Advisory Issued as Rain Pounds Region

A flood advisory is in place for much of the region as serous thunderstorms continue rumbling through the metro from west to east, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

Severe thunderstorm warnings were issued earlier this morning for the Pearsall and Dilley areas as the storms moved through that area.

CPS Energy says roughly 2700 customers are without electric power, mainly on the west and south sides of the city.

Several low water crossings were barricaded this morning, and water covered many surface streets and interstate highways.

A SAWS water main break caused trouble on the lower level of I-35 just north of downtown early this morning, forcing one motorists to be rescued by firefighters.

The rain should begin to move out of the area in the 8 and 9 AM hours.
