MEXIA, TX (KXXV) -

Mexia ISD will be starting at 10 Thursday morning due to recent flooding.

According to the National Weather Service, residents near Lake Mexia were being evacuated from their homes after continued downpours have lead to flooding in the area.

Limestone County Emergency Management says reports indicate that Lake Mexia is experiencing a major flooding event. Units were on the scene at Lake evacuating people.

The Groesbeck Volunteer Fire Department had to rescue a 34-year-old woman after her car was swept off LCR 456 at Plummers Creek. Shiloh Fire Department and Mexia Fire Department and Rescue aided in successful the rescue. The woman was uninjured.

On Wednesday morning the Limestone County Sheriff's Office posted a warning to residents on Facebook saying that several county roads had water flowing over them.

Officials also say they received reports of water over the roadway on US 84 just west of the Lake Mexia bridge and SH 14 near the Navasota bridge.

Around 11 a.m. residents close to the lake started being evacuated.

Rain is expected to continue in the Lake Mexia until Wednesday evening

A line of storms are moving towards the Central Texas area from San Antonio.
