Temporary Closures, Power Outages Due to Recent Storms
Due to strong storms that moved through the area Saturday night, several areas in the City of Kerrville have been left without power. The
Kerrville Public Utility Board is aware of the outages and working to restore power as soon as possible.
Due to the heavy amounts of rainfall, all low water crossings in the City of Kerrville have been closed until the water recedes and city crews can properly clean those public areas up.
Additionally, the River Trail, Louise Hays Park and Guadalupe Park have been temporarily closed due to flooding. Barricades have been put up at each trailhead for public safety. The trail will re-open as soon as the water recedes and clean-up is completed.
All city crews are working hard to clear debris from public roads and parks. As soon as a road is clear of potential hazards it will re-open. While crews work, the City asks the public to avoid travel unless absolutely necessary and respect all road barricades. Additionally drivers are reminded to avoid flooded roadways and never take cover under bridges when there is a threat of rising flood waters.
