Walking around in flood waters is not only dangerous because of the currents, but also because of the quality of the water. Flood waters include sewage, debris, motor fuel, hydrocarbons and other hazards. (Daily Record photo by David Short)

Lots of water doesn’t mean river-time fun. Bringing kids near flood waters, like this family out to fish, is risky and dangerous. This weekend’s flood currents were strong, and still are. (Daily Record photo by David Short)

TROY, Ala. — Maybe Texas State went to the well one too many times.
