Lampasas and Coryell counties temporarily lifted burn bans today.
Coryell County Judge John Firth temporarily lifted the burn ban the county commissioners put in place on Monday. Due to recent rainfall, Firth suspended the 90-day burn ban until sundown Monday.
Lampasas County Judge Wayne Boultinghouse temporarily lifted the countywide burn ban until Sept. 29.
A series of rain showers moving through the area have been heavy at times, and Boultinghouse said county officials have responded to reports of flooding at low water crossings.
“In the last 24 hours, I’ve had 2.1 inches of rain. In other areas of Lampasas County, near Lometa, we’ve had as much as 3.5 inches of rain reported,” Boultinghouse said. “We’ve had to call out our men to clear logs from some of the creeks and roadways throughout the county.”
