Be careful at low-water crossings, some of which are closed


Roughly 60 low-water crossings in the Austin metro area have been closed, mostly in rural parts of Williamson, Hays, Caldwell and Bastrop counties.

Public-safety officials are urging drivers to be cautious around the crossings. The number of closures has fluctuated a bit during the day but stood at 61 at 10:30 a.m. The web site lists the closures. The number has been dropping through the morning, but with more rain on the way and the soil already saturated, the number could rise again.

Driving around barricades at low-water crossings is illegal.
