Severe flooding reported in Central Texas

Posted: Updated:

CENTRAL TEXAS (CNN) - Intense flash flooding has prompted emergency conditions in Central Texas.

Rushing water turned streets and low-lying areas into rivers around Austin. Authorities say several roads are closed, and flood-gate operations are underway around Lake Austin. A few hundred homes were without power overnight. Rescue teams responded to a handful of high-water rescues, and some residents. 

In San Antonio, meteorologists predict three-to-four inches of rain will fall before the storm clears the area this afternoon. Trick-or-treaters can expect partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the 70's.
