Some campers in Ballinger had to make a fast and unexpected "run for it" Monday morning. The normally small creek that runs through the Ballinger City Park over flowed it's banks. Local authorities say the creek has not been this high since 1997. Six inches of rain fell Sunday night in Winters, Texas that is located north of Ballinger. Once authorities received word that the creek was expected to over flow it's banks, they had just enough time to warn some people that were camping along the shore. Ballinger City Park will remain closed until the flood waters recede.
