ABC’s WFAA-TV published this news report last Tuesday, Oct 16. The Llano River’s rising, rushing flood waters wiped out the Kingsland bridge.

Kerrville, Kerr county, is located just southwest of Fredericksberg, TX.

More rain poured into the Hill County over the weekend. Monday, the city of Austin, which is Travis county, was put on boil water alert.

Monday’s aerial view as waters begin to recede. Unfortunately, 1-2 inches more rain, and in some places possibly 3+ inches, is being predicted for the next 2-3 days.

If you would like to donate to help flood victims Hill Country News has set up a Hill Country Flood Relief GoFundMe page.

This comes via The Weather Channel. From out in Two Guns, Arizona this past Saturday.

Meanwhile …. 

From Hurricane Willa, now a Cat 5, getting ready to slam into Mexico’s western side, this is what will dump more rain into the already flooded south Texas regions to the Nor’easter dropping down onto the Northeast states and the low pressure storm off the Atlantic will make for some fun weather this week.
