LLANO, Texas (AP) — Raging floodwaters have destroyed a bridge over a river in Central Texas.

Video shows the bloated Llano River overrunning a bridge in Kingsland, about 65 miles northwest of Austin.

The National Weather Service said the river at nearby Llano was expected to crest Tuesday morning at near-record levels near 41 feet, which is 18 feet above major flood stage.

A flash flood warning was in effect, and forecasters described it as a “very dangerous situation.”

The river is not expected to drop below major flood stage until Wednesday.

Four people were washed away last week when the South Llano River, which becomes the Llano River downstream, overran an RV park in Junction, Texas. Three bodies have been recovered.
