The Greater Austin area continued to see showers and thunderstorms June 3, leading to the closure of roughly 108 low-water crossings, according to the most recent report from ATX Floods.
In the Westlake region, three roadways have been closed due to high water including the Eanes Creek crossing at Camp Craft Road in West Lake Hills.

Nearby in Rollingwood, closures are in place at the Edgegrove Drive crossing on Bee Caves Road as well as the 2900 block of Bee Caves Road, which is subject to frequent flooding, according to the Rollingwood Police Department.
Rollingwood PD took to its Facebook page to urge motorists to practice caution and avoid travel as heavy rainfall persists.
“6 inches of water will reach the bottom of most passenger cars causing loss of control and possible stalling. 12 inches of water will float many vehicles. 2 feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles including sport utility vehicles and pick-ups,” the post stated.
Additionally, the low water crossing at the 2900 block of Bee Caves does not feature guard rails, meaning nothing is in place to prevent a vehicle from being swept into the Eanes Creek Watershed, according to Rollingwood PD.
Heavy rainfall is expected to continue through the afternoon with the possibility of flash flooding, according to an update from the National Weather Service.
