Fast-moving water slammed against a Texas bridge, causing it to crumble under the flow. A section of the FM 2900 Bridge collapsed in Kingsland around 9:15am Tuesday morning.
Video shows the bloated Llano River overrunning a bridge in Kingsland, about 65 miles northwest of Austin. Several chunks of the bridge are also seen floating downstream.
‘Major flooding’ occurred near the bridge, which sits above the Llano River, causing the water on the Llano to crest at nearly 40 feet, just shy of the record of 41.5 feet
Following the collapse, the Lower Colorado River Authority closed Travis, Marble Falls, Inks and Buchanan effective immediately.
Heavy rains have swollen Central Texas rivers, sending water over bridges, threatening riverside structures and prompting recommendations for area residents to evacuate. Evacuations are underway in the cities of Kingsland and Marble Falls, both northwest of Austin.
Forecasters told resident along the Llano River to seek higher ground after more than 10 inches of rain fell in the past day and a half.
