At 12:10 p.m. Oct. 9, the river had receded below the 10-foot flood level. More rain to the west, however, is on the way and expected to keep the river above flood stage until the early morning hours of Oct. 11, according to the National Weather Service. The river could crest up to about 18 feet Wednesday afternoon.
Low-water crossings along the Llano River remain closed in Llano County, according to atxfloods.com. Heavy rains Oct. 9 in Marble Falls also caused road closings within the city.
Debris from the Llano River flood swept through the river and into Lake LBJ and caused some damage to boat docks and riverfront items. However, the affect to Llano County was minimal.
“County-wide, there were no significant impacts,” said Llano County Emergency Management Coordinator Ron Anderson. “No swift-water rescues were called for or needed; there was no loss of life and no injuries.”
Anderson said he does not expect further damage from the next wave of floodwaters coming downstream, and his office will post updates to its Facebook page.
The forecast in Llano calls for a 30 percent chance of showers late Oct. 9 and clear weather through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service. The forecast is 20 percent chance of showers Friday and 40 percent Saturday and Sunday.
