Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is calling the flood damage in the central part of his state "absolutely devastating."
Abbott flew over parts of the Blanco River Monday, a day after storms triggered flooding. The hardest-hit communities were Wimberley and San Marcos. Abbott added 24 counties to the disaster declaration he issued earlier this month to help communities overwhelmed with heavy rains and tornado damage.
The high water forced Peggy Wilborn — and her neighbors — from their homes in Wimberley.
