SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) - A woman who drove around barricades and became stuck in floodwaters with two children faces child endangerment charges.

A Hays County Sheriff's spokesman says 30-year-old Laura Delarosa, of Dripping Springs, ignored barricades near Onion Creek and entered a low-level crossing.

She was arrested Saturday after rescue workers were able to get her, a 9-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy to safety. Delarosa faces two counts of child endangerment.

Several roads in Hays County were closed because of high water.

Parts of central Texas received more than a dozen inches of rain over the weekend.
