Between Austin, San Antonio, Houston & Bryan/College Station

Heavy Rains Expected Sunday – Tuesday:

A slow-moving storm system continues to indicate a threat of locally heavy rainfall for South Central Texas Late Saturday through Tuesday Morning. Widespread 3-5 inches with isolated 7-10 inch totals possible.  City of Smithville crews have been preparing for this storm system by clearing debris from drains and culverts in flood-prone areas using a high-pressure jetblast machine. Typically, most drainage systems throughout town can handle 4-5 inches of rain over several days. It's the 4 inches of rain in a couple of hours that causes concern and can over-burden the system. To this end, please check your culverts and drains today and tomorrow. Remove any debris that could impede the flow of stormwater. City crews will remain on-call to respond to power outages, fallen trees, and other issues as needed. This message will be updated as conditions warrant. In the interim, stay tuned to local newscasts and/or information published by the Bastrop Office of Emergency Management.
