Severe storms sweep through Central Texas

Posted: Updated:

Severe thunderstorms brought heavy rain and hail to downtown Austin.

FOX 7 viewer, Brendan Steinhauser, sent us video of sidewalks flooding, preventing some from getting to their cars.

Another viewer, Mike Marshall, sent in amazing video of hail in Lockhart. The ground seems to be moving but its all water.

Being a smart driver, he stayed inside the car until it was safe to drive.

Marble falls also saw lots of hail.

Many viewers sent in pictures of hail.

The severe thunderstorm flooded plenty of areas and several swift water rescues were called for across town.

Flooding can happen in an instant, so if you are driving in dangerous conditions, turn around and don't drown. If you can, try to avoid traveling.

Several roads have been closed due to flooding. To view road closures click here.
