CENTRAL TEXAS — The severe weather threat is not over yet for parts of Central Texas.

Storms are moving through the area again Sunday which could cause flooding in several areas.

A slight risk of severe storms is expected for areas east of I-35 and along I-45.

The primary threat for these storms is flash flooding due to large amounts of rainfall that fell in Saturday's storm as well as Sunday's projected rainfall.

In Rockdale, FM 487 was closed due to water over the roadway. Flooding was also reported on FM 485 at the junction of US 77.

Drivers are reminded to not drive through puddles with unknown depths.
