The amount of rain reported by county residents varies from one to eleven inches.
Local law enforcement agencies, fire departments and Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) employees were out in force checking the roads for flooding and watching for stranded motorists.
The Karnes City Fire Department was called to FM 792 where a car had hydroplaned and gone off the road into the ditch.
Firefighters assisted the occupants of the car out of the water uninjured.
Because of the large amounts of rain over several hours several low water crossings had water over the road causing the roads being closed.
Most of the roads were only closed for a short time before the flood waters quickly receded.
FM 627, County Road 302 and FM 792 had part of the pavement washed out and had to be repaired for safety reasons.
TxDOT Employees repaired FM 627 and County Road 302 after the storm had pasted.
FM 792 was closed overnight while the water drained away and crews made repairs on Thursday morning.
While there were no reported injuries or evacuations because of the storm, many residents were left without electricity.
Both Karnes Electric Coop and AEP reported multiple outages but representatives of both companies said power was restored during the night or during the morning hours on Thursday.
The power outage included the Karnes County Sheriff’s Department causing the emergency generators to turn on powering the radios.
For unknown reasons the generator did not restore the department’s phone lines.
Officials say the sheriff’s department was without phones for approximately two hours. During that time 911 calls were handled by Wilson County.
