WIMBERLEY, Texas (AP) — A Central Texas town has received more than a foot of rain in storms that flooded roadways and closed schools.

The National Weather Service on Thursday reported the Wimberley area received up to 14 inches of rain.

Meteorologist Steve Smart says rainfall around Wimberley, a town of about 2,600 located 30 miles southwest of Austin, added up to the highest precipitation totals since the storms began Wednesday.

The Wimberley Independent School District canceled classes Thursday because of "extreme weather conditions."

Neighboring school district in San Marcos and Lockhart also called classes Thursday following the bad weather.
