I guess there was bad flooding in 2013 that wiped out most of the rigs in park. There was talk about installing a flood gauge on the Blanco River after that, and exactly that happened in January of this year. If it were not for that gauge we may not be having this conversation!

FYI... I am not from here, however, we had to change our travel plans due to parks closed in the Hill Country and are now in route to Buckhorn Lake Resort - Kerrville, Texas for the next 3 nights, and then will be traveling to where the rally will be held. I did ask if they could handle a rally they said they could and if over 15 units $35 a night. I have never been there we will be traveling there today, just wanted to find a high safe space for us now, I don't know what the park looks like other than the web site, just offering info to all. It does look like any pvt. park will be easy to get into for the weekend, in the event you guys have to select a different park due to closure or flooding.

Your crazy to even think, or actually try to go, about a rally in the Hill country this week. Really check the weather some more.

We are considering options. With the evacuations, it looks like we will cancel due to more rain expected throughout the week and just hunker down.

On another note, an earth dam in Willis Texas, just North of Conroe is being closely watched with heavy rains expected later today. It must be part of Lake Conroe.

We hope every one is ok. Try to stay dry!

The news just said the San Marcos rose to a record breaking 43 ft. I doubt the park will be open.

FYI, I don't know if they are doing it today but the weather channel yesterday and definitely HLN channel on cable today is showing pictures of the damage in San Marcos. There is a curfew at night until the City accesses all damage and road conditions.

Cut and paste from weatherchannel.com

Catastrophic Flash Flood near San Marcos, Texas
At least one man has died in San Marcos, Texas, as a result of the catastrophic flash flood that developed on the Blanco River late Saturday night before emptying into the San Marcos River Sunday morning.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood emergency late Sunday morning for the San Marcos River from San Marcos to Luling, Texas. This included parts of southeastern Hays, western Caldwell and northern Guadalupe counties. San Marcos is a city of about 55,000 people between Austin and San Antonio. A surge of floodwater continues to roll downstream along the San Marcos River into Luling, Texas.

The San Marcos River is rising fast in Martindale and Luling, Texas. Palmetto State Park at Ottine is experiencing severe flooding with at least 6 feet of water in the pavilion building likely, based on Sunday afternoon's NWS river stage report. Much of the Luling Golf Course is likely to flood, and some of the lowest homes north and northeast of the golf course may flood depending on exactly how high the river gets.

A curfew has been declared beginning at 9 p.m. Sunday and ending at 7 a.m. Monday for the cities of San Marcos and Wimberley, Texas, as well as unincorporated areas of Hays County.

An estimated 1,000 homes have been flooded in Hays County, Texas. Some residents are still stranded in their homes, but officials said Sunday afternoon that there are no longer any people waiting on rooftops for rescue. Up to 12.32 inches of rain fell near Kendalia, Texas in this event.

The Blanco River at San Marcos, Texas, crested just over 43 feet early Sunday morning, a rise of over 31 feet since late Saturday night. That 31-foot surge in the river level included a rise of 17 feet in just 30 minutes. Water levels remain high this morning as the flood crest rolls downstream.

The Blanco River rose more than 33 feet in just 3 hours in Wimberley, Texas, reaching a level more than 27 feet above flood stage at 1 a.m. Sunday. This broke the all-time record crest from 1929 by nearly 7 feet, before the river gauge stopped reporting. Wimberley is about 25 miles southwest of Austin. Emergency management reported residents were trapped on rooftops due to the sudden rise in floodwaters. Officials opened shelters to house those forced from their homes by the swollen river.

Wow. That far exceeds the damage in the 2013 flood from what I have seen. They will be challenged to recover from that. Very said. Glad to hear there was no loss of life.

The Texas Alamo Unit Rally is being held in Fredericksburg Texas at Oakwood RV Park May 28-31. Maybe some rain, but no flooding.
