Heavy thunderstorms and three reported tornadoes pounded a large swath of central Texas on Friday from San Antonio to Bastrop County, causing water rescues, street flooding and damage, according to the Weather Channel and the National Weather Service...A warm front across south Central Texas along with moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and a disturbance from the west sparked the severe weather, Treadway said...“We were prepared for this all week,” he said. “We did not anticipate the significant rain amounts we’re seeing.”
