Latest San Marcos, Texas, weather

Despite the catastrophic weather, this simple scene should remind us all to remember those who served and those who fell. (Photo courtesy of Phil Lewis)

Cumming’s Dam, located just below the confluence of the San Marcos and Blanco Rivers, was inundated but not failing Tuesday afternoon as had been reported on social media.

A heartfelt thank you

Editor,
Quickly rising water in the early morning hours of Sunday, May 24th, necessitated evacuation from our San Marcos community. Calvary Church provided temporary shelter for our residents, families and team. Hays Nursing and Rehab Center generously offered their building as a temporary home until transport to our New Braunfels communities could be facilitated.  Hays ISD graciously assisted in transport.

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)
