Authorities, and Kempner area residents have a watchful eye on the Lampasas River Bridge on Hwy 190E at Kempner. Flood stage there is 18ft and NWS reports had it at about 15ft earlier this morning. Additional rainfall, or more swollen water coming down will bring the levels up. NWS says they believe it will crest at 22ft this afternoon before it starts down. That could cause the highway to be closed until the water recedes.
