A close-up look at Barton Creek's crazy weekend flooding


May 6, 2019

It was a wild Friday night of rain in the Austin area.  Some areas saw up to six and seven inches of rain in just a few hours!  As a result, Barton Creek was closed most of the weekend.  Areas that usually run only a few inches deep were turned into wild rapids.  The creek reached levels that haven't been seen in 90 years!  Yesterday, I went down to get a close-up look:

It was a sight to see.  More rain expected this week, so be careful and remember to "turn around, don't drown".
