Storms packing heavy rain rumbled through Texas County on Thursday night. More intense weather is expected Friday. 

Heavy storms ripped through Texas County last night, prompting warnings, high water and opening of storm shelters. 

At least one road was closed after a tree fell at Bell Road and Highway 17 in northern Texas County, authorities said. 

Storm shelters at Houston and Licking were opened. 

Rainfall amounts varied in the county. A gauge west of Houston showed nearly 4 inches this morning. 

The National Weather Service says more heavy rain and storms are expected later Friday and during the evening. Flooding will be a concern.
