Flood waters have destroyed homes and stranded hundreds of vehicles in the streets, with multiple water rescues taking place across central Texas including in Austin.
In a break between rainstorms, the person behind YouTube channel DLR Productions used a drone to film flood damage in Austin. Bird’s-eye footage shows rivers overflowing and water filling low-lying streets, with several areas now completely inaccessible by car.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbot has declared a state of disaster in 24 counties so far, describing the damage in South Texas as “the biggest flood this area of Texas has ever seen.”
