Blanco River & Texas Flood Photos Depict Catastrophic Damage

Officials estimate that over the weekend as many as 450 homes were completely swept off their foundations and carried down the rushing Blanco River. Over 1,000 homes sustained damage and numerous bridges were washed out by the floodwater. This article will be updated with more photos as they become available.

“We do have whole streets that have maybe one or two houses left on them, and the rest are just slabs,” said a Hays County emergency management coordinator.

Wildlife, including this fawn, have been displaced. Texas Parks & Wildlife will no doubt have their hands full.
