San Antonio – The Comal and Guadalupe rivers in New Braunfels are temporarily closed due to the rapid movement of water and debris due to floods.
As of Thursday morning, access to the Comal River in New Braunfels and part of the Guadalupe River in the city area has been closed. City officials will reassess the terms on Friday.
David Ferguson, spokeswoman for New Braunfels, said the flow of the Comal River is 3,680 cubic feet per second and the flow of the Guadalupe River is 5,740 cubic feet per second.
According to the National Weather Service, the Guadalupe River has reached the flood level.
Earlier Thursday, the crew responded to a fallen trailer at the River Ranch RV Resort under Interstate Highway 35 along the Guadalupe River. Ferguson said one of those trailers was taken downstream.
Both the Komar and Guadalupe rivers have poor water quality.
“We need to be aware that additional thunderstorms and other weather factors will influence future decisions by city officials,” Ferguson said in a news release. “Whenever you see water on the road, look back and don’t drown. Don’t drive the barricade.”
