UNDATED -- Here's a look at storms and flooding Thursday in Texas:

- Parker County Judge Mark Riley has declared a disaster and ordered evacuation of residents along the flooded Brazos River. The affected communities are Horseshoe Bend, Rio Brazos, Soda Springs, Hillbilly Haven RV Park and Lazy Bend Estates.

The Mountain River community has also evacuated.

Members of the Texas National Guard today went door-to-door at homes along the Brazos River -- below Possum Kingdom Lake -- to advise people to evacuate.

- An emergency response team from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality spent today at Lake Granbury and along the flooded Brazos River.

Those experts are evaluating the area's damaged water and sewer
systems.

-- Two people in Williamson County were feared washed away earlier Thursday after their car was found abandoned, but they were found safe.

- All residents have been accounted for in flooded Marble Falls, but about 150 homes and businesses suffered damage.

Authorities say most residents in the Hill Country town of about 7,200 are without running water. Bottled water is being made available by state emergency workers.

A spokeswoman says as many as 150 homes and businesses were damaged in Marble Falls.
