The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for Erath County in effect through Wednesday.

"The ground remains saturated from heavy rains over the past several days," the advisory states. "Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected across much of the area today and Wednesday as moist air moves in from the south and an upper level disturbance approaches from the west. Any locally heavy rain that occurs will create additional flooding concerns through Wednesday."

Several streets and low water crossings remain closed following last weekend's storms that brought record-setting rain to the area.

City and county officials urge motorists to use caution and common sense when traveling on rain-washed streets and roads.

John Wooley, the county's emergency management coordinator, said it only takes 2 feet of water to dislodge a vehicle from the roadway.
