Substantial flooding in Fayette County

As the heavy rains continue to fall in the area there will be the possibility of flooding like in Fayette County where substantial flooding is happening. Creeks are overflowing and several roads have been shut down.

Fayette County is used to flooding but emergency officials don't want anyone to get too comfortable. The remnants of Harvey are dumping several inches of rain into the area.

Just off Highway 71 West in the town of Plum dry land turned into a lake and authorities had to shut access roads down.

Fayette County alone shut down more than 25 roads because of the flooding danger. With  more rain expected, first responders are ready and nobody is taking a chance.

Two shlelters are open at La Grange Second Baptist Church and Schulemberg High School if people feel the need to evacuate.
