SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Parts of South Texas have been hit with hail the size of tennis balls as storms dumped up to 4 inches of rain.

The National Weather Service in New Braunfels said Wednesday it has had no reports of injuries during storms in Castroville, just west of San Antonio. Hail up to 3 inches in diameter damaged some vehicles and buildings.

Forecaster Jack Runyen says New Braunfels and parts of San Antonio had 3-to-4 inches of rain since Tuesday night.

Runyen says several high-water rescues were reported in the New Braunfels area, with nobody hurt. Police didn't immediately provide additional information.

A flood warning was issued Wednesday for the Comal (KOH'-mal) River, in Guadalupe and Comal counties. Forecasters issued a flood warning for the Medina River at Highway 281 until Thursday.
