FLOODING UPDATE: From the Texas Department of Emergency Management: "A secondary rise is expected on the Llano River at Llano by Wednesday morning to heights similar to what was observed this morning. Continue to follow the direction of local officials if you live in this area." We still have a tremendous amount of danger with flooding continuing in parts of our community. Flash flood watches will remain in effect until Thursday for Bandera, Blanco, Burnet, Edwards, Gillespie, Kendall, Kerr, Kinney, Llano, Maverick, Medina, Real, Uvalde, Valverde and Zavala counties. State agencies have been activated and are conducting evacuations and rescues. If you are in danger, reach out immediately to 911 for law enforcement support. Governor Abbott has increased State Operations Center Readiness Levels to Level 3 and this will remain in effect until further notice. I have been in communication with Governor Abbott, Texas Department of Emergency Management, Texas Parks and Wildlife, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and Health and Human Services Commission, among others, to ensure that state resources are activated in areas of need. Many bridges and roads have been affected and closed. Emergency management officials blocked access to more than 150 low-water crossings today. TxDOT is monitoring road conditions and you can check road closures here: drivetexas.org. Floodgate operations are also underway along the Highland Lakes at Inks, Wirtz, Starcke, Mansfield and Tom Miller. Please take due care, especially with this cold weather. With the soil so saturated, even if rain has ceased in your area, flash flooding is still very much a risk. Remember that flooding dangers can be much more difficult to recognize at night.

The Junction Eagle Facebook page reports that "Interstate 10 is covered by water at mile marker 465. All eastbound traffic should divert to Hwy. 83 North or Hwy. 377 North. The interstate is closed at the eastbound 456 mile marker on ramp. Check drivetexas.org for the latest road conditions." Severe flooding continues in Edwards, Real, Kimble, Mason and Llano Counties, and flooding on the Johnson Fork near Segovia and on the Main Llano River is expected to hit record levels. Junction schools are closed today. I am working with Texas Department of Emergency Management to ensure that our local first responders have the assets and resources they need to access and remove flood victims. Please take precautions and call 911 if you need assistance. In Llano County, shelters have opened at John Kuykendall Arena & Events Center at 2200 W Ranch Road 152, Lutie Watkins Memorial United Methodist Church at 800 Wright Street in Llano, and the Kingsland Community Center.

When I reflect on the strength of rural Texans after the natural disasters in Junction and Sonora, I am blown away. Yesterday, a third fatality from the recent flooding of the South Llano River was located. One more individual remains missing from this disaster. All together over 100 Texas interagency personnel led by the Kimble County Sheriff’s Office, Kimble County Rural VFD, Junction PD and Kimble County EMS answered the call when disaster struck. My heartfelt appreciation and gratitude goes out to all of the agencies, organizations and individuals who came together during this catastrophe. My thoughts and prayers go out to every family and household who is experiencing loss and to all families who face hardship ahead throughout the rebuilding process in Junction, Sonora, and several other areas in this region impacted by recent flash flood events. Together we can, we have and we will remain strong.
