FIRST ALERT: Severe storms bring heavy rain, flooding to South Texas

Severe weather update 6 p.m. 4-11-17

A large storm system that stalled overnight before regenerating Tuesday morning brought heavy rainfall and flooding to counties north and east of San Antonio around midday Tuesday.

A Tornado Warning was in effect for about an hour at midday in Guadalupe County before expiring at 1:45 p.m. There were no immediate reports of wind-related damage.

Severe thunderstorm warnings and watches have expired throughout the KENS 5 viewing area, but high water levels are still a concern for some.

A flood warning is still in effect for the Guadalupe River until Wednesday at 7:50 a.m.

The heaviest rain concentration is in New Braunfels and San Marcos, where several roads have been closed and videos have come in showing how bad the flooding has gotten in the area.

Texas State University even suspended classes from 2-5 p.m.

Some students were even spotted wake-boarding through flood waters in a parking lot.
