Widespread damage, flooding reported across the area after overnight storms

BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) – The Brazos Valley once again experienced flooding, power outages, small hail, washed out roads and wind damage from storms that started Saturday and continued into the early morning hours of Sunday.

Drone footage sent to KBTX by Christopher Gilmore shows flooding on Rock Prairie Road between Lick Creek Park and Peach Creek Road in College Station. The video shows at least one home on Rock Prairie surrounded by water flowing from Carters Creek, but it is unclear if anyone is still inside.

In other parts of the city, residents are waiting for power to be restored after fallen trees hit power lines. “Crews continue to restore power after overnight storms. They will work until they are all recovered. We appreciate your patience,” BTU said in a post on X. Some homes and vehicles in Bryan-College Station suffered damage after large trees snapped or were uprooted by the storm.

Blurred roads remain a problem. In the Calvert area, firefighters helped a driver out of a pickup truck after he drove onto a washed-out road on S Tidewell Prairie. We’re told the driver did not suffer any serious injuries. Authorities are warning motorists to be aware of dangerous road conditions, especially at night in rural areas.
