The following National Weather Service watches and warnings remained in effect as of 4 p.m. Monday, May 25:

•Flood warning, San Antonio River near Elmendorf and Falls City
•Flood warning, Cibolo Creek near Falls City
•Flash flood watch, all of South Central Texas, until 1 a.m. Tuesday, May 26

The San Antonio River near Elmendorf crested at just under 45 feet at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 24, according to the National Weather Service, causing flooding to the Helton-San Antonio River Nature Park and the surrounding area. One day later, C.R. 117 between F.M. 1303 and U.S. 181 Business north of Floresville remained closed due to a bridge being under water and significant damage to the road surface.

Another waterway officials are watching is the Cibolo Creek near Stockdale. Wilson County Emergency Management Coordinator LeAnn Hosek said May 25 that the creek had flooded F.M. 537 that morning and that it was just five feet from the overpass at C.R. 401 near the Jackson Nature Park. Downstream, near Falls City, the Cibolo is forecasted to crest at 27.2 feet by 10 p.m. Tuesday, May 26, which would be considered a “major” flooding.

Wilson County officials are seeking state aid to repair roads damaged by recent weather conditions. (See May 27 Wilson County News for more.)
