Check out the 24-hour rainfall totals in Texas, with 11.33″ at Sunset Valley and over 10″ near Austin. Carrizo Springs reported 10.65″, 9.5″ fell in just 6 hours at Big Wells and Cotulla had 7.03″ in 6 hours. Roads have been washed out and some schools have been closed for Monday. The Austin City Limits Music Fest was cancelled as the park where the concert was being held flooded. Some evacuations were underway and one pregnant woman in Manchaca was rescued from her car, stranded in 3 feet of water. A wastewater lift station overflowed and “spillage” (that’s what they called it) went into a nearby creek.
