A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH is in effect for Austin, Burleson, Lee, and Washington Counties until 10am, and Montgomery & Waller Counties until 1pm. Damaging winds in excess of 60mph is the main concern.
Two days after being demobilized, Texas Task Force 1 has been deployed again. 26 members headed to the rain soaked areas Sunday in north and central Texas.
Two Texas Task Force 1 swiftwater rescue squads are headed to Eastland County, while another two are headed to Parker County.
The deployment is expected to last through the end of the week, as the National Weather Service believes additional heavy rains will fall beginning Monday.
Texas Task Force 1 is sponsored by the Texas Engineering Extension Service, or TEEX, and is comprised of more than 300 personnel from across the state of Texas.
