We had a relaxing Memorial Day weekend, but Saturday and Monday brought huge storms to the Austin area. Our power was off for a few hours both days and the creek near our house filled higher than I’ve ever seen it before, but we are safe and dry. Other parts of central Texas were hit incredibly hard. Rivers flooded, homes were destroyed, and people lost their lives. This isn’t the first time flooding like this has happened here, but it doesn’t make it any easier.
Laura, a local blogger, shares her parents’ flood experience and offers a comprehensive list of resources available to central Texas.
It’s a difficult time right now for Austin and the surrounding area, and more rain is in the forecast.
