Default Flooding in Junction

Seen earlier where the South llano river is flooding. Helicopter rescues are in place and several have been swept away in flood waters. Letís take a moment and pray for those involved.

I thought the bridge in town, well the south part of town, had one of those structures above it. See it below.

Yeah, it's not that bridge...it's where I-10 crosses just north of there. Pics appear to be taken from the Econo Lodge.

Where is your property? Our house is between the golf course and city dam. If I remember correctly, in 1997 the river was up to the slab at 39'.

That's I-10 I went over today. On the way back from my lease, lots of water all the way west.
I suggest anybody heading west on I-10 need a change of plans I seen a lot of emergency rescue services heading out of San Antonio headed West.

Has been raining for the past few months and then there are places that got hammered the past 24 hours. Some places show to have gotten 6" in a very short period of time.

It poured west of Brady from 2am-9am this morning. We have flooding on our lease and most of the side roads and even a couple of places on the main windmill roads are impassable with standing water or water running off...


This is normally dry...

Good grief. I'm glad that areas getting rain but that's just nucking futs. You get 6" of rain up there and it's a whole different ballgame than 6" down here.

Two weekends ago in Concan off 83 at the Dry Frio bridge (this is normally completely dry). I heard it had gone down this past weekend. Then I see this post from a friend earlier today

We will be up there Friday as well up off of 2291. Interesting thing about the river is that all of the rain south of town is what made the river come up. The south llano actually runs north through there so the rains donít have to come from the north of it to make it rise. We only had 2.5 inches nw of Junction close to where we are. Pretty sure its the only river in the state that does that.

My buddy went to the Ranch near Barksdale and is stranded. Land line went dead, so he called from the highest hill to get cell service. He said we lost 2 sides of our high fence. He made some repairs, but ran out of supplies. He wasnít sure but he heard a freight train roaring past the cabin ( no tracks nearby ) last night. This morning he saw several uprooted trees. The road into the Ranch is washed out in several places. He is hoping by Tuesday morning the water will recede and he can crawl out of there. His Chevy is lifted and should traverse washouts, maybe.

I left our place off of 2291 last night but my wife, mother in law, and two kids stayed behind to leave today. Luckily they woke up early enough and quickly realized they needed to go... thankfully the Ranch manager drove in from town to escort them out as they had to cross several low water crossings, one of which was pretty rough evidently. The didnít know it but the road had already been closed. Glad they made it or my day would have been spent trying to figure out how to get formula, diapers, food, and lots of wine out there to them...

I got out of rocksprings just as the first line of storms was forming up. I got 8.64 inches at my place and they've gotten over 12 just north of me where the llano drainage starts. looks like I'm going to have a lot of work when I head back in 2 weeks.

Got some reports out of Junction & it was pretty bad. Heading up Thursday hopefully to check on things. I just hope that they can find those that are still missing alive. For those that are familiar with the area apparently the lady that was found road a stump from the s llano rv park all the way to close to YATES crossing!
