Rains cause flooding
There is a little flash flooding on FM 1600 at Bear Creek just north of County Road 220. Milam County Sheriff Chris White said FM 1600 will be closed until water recedes off the road. Parts of Milam County have gotten six or more inches of rain over the last three days. Please avoid water crossing the road. The Milam County Commissioners lifted the burn ban across the county on Thursday morning due to the rain. White said that CR 218 is also impassable this morning due to the rains.
