Flooding caused road closures throughout the northern Texas Panhandle early Thursday.

Shortly before 3:00 a.m., a spokesman for the Ochiltree County Sheriff's Office in Perryton said it appeared waters were beginning to recede. He said he knew of no damaged homes, injuries or deaths.

Rising water prompted numerous road closures in largely rural areas of Hansford, Lipscomb, Ochiltree and Roberts counties, where flood warnings were issued.
