As you may have noticed, large areas of Central Texas were flooded after heavy rains Thursday. As the skies began to clear, we went out to explore and captured these photos and videos at The Oscar Store east of Temple and The Gin at Nolan Creek in Belton.

We do not recommend kayaking in raging floodwaters, but at least these guys were wearing life vests.

And here's footage of the flooding at Oscar and Nolan Creek.
