An already storm-battered Erath County took another whipping Tuesday night when a string of severe thunderstorms rumbled across North Texas.
The storms added to the ongoing misery of soggy conditions and record-setting rain that has plagued the area for weeks.
The bad news is there is still more to come.
"We are still assessing the damage, but I can tell you that there are complete washouts on several county roads and damage to bridges," John Wooley, Erath County emergency management coordinator, said Wednesday. "People need to use caution on roads and be patient. We can't get in to fix these areas until we get the weather to cooperate."
Wooley said there is standing water throughout the county and some areas are impassible, including parts of Alexander Road.
Police Chief Jason King said several city streets are closed due to high water including parts of City Park, Long Street and where Swan meets the South Loop.
Forecasters say there is a chance of more severe weather for the remainder of the week and into the weekend. The rain is expected to clear out next week.
