12-inches of rain was the cause of flash flooding that washed away residents of a Junction, Texas RV park on Monday and Tuesday.

News 10 reports that Texas Game Warden Rachel Kellner said the South Llano River at Junction was a "muddy mess," with debris making a search way to dangerous after sunset. 4 of Kellner's coworkers were among the missing after their RV was swept away in the flood waters.

Driving rains made getting rescue boats into the river a dangerous task and strong winds kept helicopters that could assist in the search grounded. Eventually, rescue teams were able to get to work and rescued 19 people in Junction, Texas, about 140 miles west of the capital. All of those rescued were checked out at area medical centers.

The flooding washed away a dozen RV's during the storms.
