Flash Flood Watch for several counties, some low water crossings closed

Steady rain has caused a steady flood of problems this morning in Central Texas. A Flash Flood Watch is in effects for parts of the area until 7 p.m.

It was an accident filled morning commute with some roads closed due to rising waters. From midnight until mid-morning there were more than two dozen wrecks in the metro area.

One neighborhood in Cedar Park near Highway 183 and New Hope Road usually has to deal with high water and the low water crossings there, and in several other places, were closed this morning.

The majority of the problems were in Williamson County.
