County judge issues evacuation on areas along river

The threat of severe flooding in low lying areas along the Guadalupe River west and south of the City of Cuero has impressed the county judge of DeWitt County, Daryl L. Fowler, to issue a mandatory evacuation. 

All persons in the DeWitt County, with exception of essential emergency personnel, are ordered to immediately evacuate the areas of DeWitt County bounded by the low-lying areas and subdivisions along the Guadalupe River south and west of the City of Cuero including, but not limited to River Haven, River Oaks, Cypress Valley, and other areas that might include temporary housing and/or RV Parks.

The evacuation will remain in effect until rescinded by order of the county judge of DeWitt County.

According to the NOAA web site (water.weather.gov) the river is expected to peak at 7 a.m. of May 28.

At this morning's county commissioner's court meeting Fowler said, “We are operation under the assumption of 44 feet. We have since the beginning.”

TxDOT to monitor DeWitt County highways as major flooding expected to begin May 26

CUERO – Following massive rainstorms that dumped several inches of rain in Central Texas, DeWitt County Judge Daryl Fowler on Sunday issued a voluntary evacuation order for all affected areas in and around the Guadalupe River, effective immediately. The National Weather Service expects the river to rise above the 24-foot flood stage on Tuesday, with anticipated cresting of around 44 feet on Thursday.

At this water level, major roads in and out of Cuero could be under water. TxDOT crews will be out in full force erecting barricades where needed. All motorists are urged to use extreme caution, and to never drive around or remove barricades; not only is it against the law, doing so could put your life or the lives of others in danger.
