Flood Impacts & Photos Collapse
If you notice any errors in the below information, please contact our Webmaster
13 the river reaches major flood stage, and approaches record levels. Flooding of FM 170 is imminent. Homes in Candelaria will likely begin flood, especially those on the south side of the road.
12 the river continues to flood low areas oF FM 170. The river will likely begin to affect homes on the west side of the roadway. Livestock and machinery along the river will be impacted.
10 the river reaches moderate flood stage, flooding some sections of FM 170. Water levels in the flood plain may begin to affect homes between the road and the river. The roadway to the foot bridge may be inundated. Livestock and machinery may need to be moved as time and conditions permit.
8.5 the river reaches minor flood stage, possibly resulting in flooding of FM 170 in low areas. Homes in Candelaria are not expected to be affected. Farmers and ranchers need to remain alert to the weather and river conditions as livestock and machinery may need to be moved to higher ground.
7.5 the river reaches bankfull, and no significant damage is expected.
