Gov. Greg Abbott set aside May 21-25 as Flood Awareness Week. We are approaching the third anniversary of the Memorial Day flooding of 2015.
He encouraged people to understand and respect the power of water.
“At this time, I encourage all Texans to be informed and prepared for floods and flash floods to be mindful of signs and barriers warning of flood dangers. Always ‘Turn Around, Don’t Drown’ – you could save your life or the life of a loved one,” Abbott wrote in his proclamation.
