Flooded rivers and creeks still pose a threat in Texas as parts of the state could get more rain Friday.

The forecast calls for thunderstorms across areas of North and Central Texas.

Here's more:

The Brazos River was more than two feet above flood stage Thursday night, but the level has gone down Friday.

Experts say the Brazos River could rise and cause more flooding if another gate is opened at Possum Kingdom Lake's dam.

Lake Leon near Eastland is facing flooding problems.

Authorities say about 25 people have refused to leave their homes -- several days after evacuations were ordered for the 150 or so homes near the lake.

Brownwood officials and volunteers bagged more than 40 tons of sandbags to give away in case of more rain. Two roads remained closed in the city.
