BASTROP, Texas - Emergency officials say heavy rain in Central Texas has left behind some flooded roads.

The National Weather Service says a storm Tuesday morning dumped more than 5 inches of rain along the line between Travis and Bastrop counties.

Department of Public Safety Trooper Robbie Barrera says some residents were sheltering in place but no homes had to be evacuated. Barrera says nobody was hurt in the heavy rain that caused some road flooding.

Barrera says the rainfall had eased by early Tuesday afternoon. Forecasters say showers and thunderstorms are likely through Wednesday.

Barrera says the affected areas are not where wildfires last year caused sweeping damage in Bastrop County, about 30 miles east of Austin.
