The previously closed low-water crossings were reopened Sunday morning, but some floodwater remained. 

The sports complex near Avery Ranch was still covered in water around 1:30 p.m.

USGS recorded Brushy Creek jumping from just below 3 ½ feet of water on August 27, to over 8 feet of water on August 28. 

The creek is continuing to slowly recede.

More rain is expected to fall in Central Texas this week, with storm chances sticking around 40-60% for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
