Uvalde, Texas--There have been numerous reports of  high-water rescues in Uvalde County Sunday morning as some much needed rain continues to fall over the drought stricken region. A flash flood warning issued for Kinney County and the northwestern part of Uvalde County through 1:00 pm Sunday is set to expire, according to officials in the area.

Up to three inches of rain has been reported in Kinney County, out near the community of Bracketville.  Several high-water rescues were also reported Sunday morning in the popular vacation area of Chalk Bluff Park.

Regardless of the flooding situation in the area, the rain is actually a good thing for the region as portions of the Texas Hill Country have been stricken by the usual summer drought.

Despite reports of rescues, officials in both Uvalde and Kinney counties have confirmed there are no reports of any casualties or deaths related to the flooding.
