Rain gauges finally got a chance to strut their stuff after heavy showers pelted many parts of the Bistone region yesterday.
Mexia recorded 1.52 inches of rain between 6:45 and 8:35 a.m., causing roadway flooding in areas that tend to fill early, including the railroad underpass at North Ross Avenue, the outside lanes of Milam Street between Ross Avenue and McKinney Street, Bonham at Hopkins Street and the intersections of U.S. 84 and Hwy. 14, and Hwy. 14 and Hwy. 171. Stalled vehicles were reported to police at the 14/171 intersection and on East Palestine.
At 9:15 a.m., after rainfall had ebbed in Mexia, the National Weather Service issued an Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for Freestone County, southeastern Limestone County, northwestern Anderson County and Henderson County until 12:15 p.m.
