In addition to the tornadoes, there was torrential rainfall to the north of us. New Braunfels and San Marcos had 17" of rain in six hours causing rivers to rise rapidly to flash flood stage. River Ranch RV Resort on the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels, which sits under the I-35 bridges, was hit hard. Check out this blog for before and after photos of that RV park: http://ourrvadventures.com/2015/10/well-that-was-fun-2/
We had some people check in to Travelers World who had been staying at Pecan Grove RV Park in San Marcos. When they checked in they told me that RV park lost 35 RVs to the flash flood. Very sad.
We didn't have quite this much standing water this time. The photo is from May 2015.
|Less rain than this in October|
(only 2-4"), this photo from May has about 6".
Parts of Austin and Houston were also effected by flooding. We were very lucky in San Antonio!
