"It started early yesterday up around the Sterling City area it has flown down pass Carlsbad and now it is at the FM 2288 bridge"
CREWS WERE DIRECTING TRAFFIC AS PEOPLE CROWDED THE BRIDGE IN HOPES TO SEE THE FLOODED RIVER
"I expect the river to peak sometime this afternoon or tonight before its starts receding flow currently and looking at the data at the steam gaging station in Sterling City which is flowing more than its flowing here right now we seen 4,500 feet of water pass that will continue to flow it would not be out of line or outrageous to think”
THE RIVER HASN'T FLOODED SINCE 2013 WHICH MADE THE BRIDGE IMPASSABLE. TODAY WARNING WENT OUT ON THE RADIO TO WARN CITIZENS OF THE FLOODING
"Flood warnings for North Concho River at Carlsbad and as well as Sterling City it is not anything we would consider dangerous other than low water crossing will be in passable, but the flood levels are only a foot or so above a miner flood stage but nothing major at this time"
MANY WONDER WHAT WAS THE CAUSE OF THE FLOODING BUT ITS WHAT SAN ANGELO WAS PRAYING FOR DURING DRY TIMES
"We’ve had a really wet September. May and September are our raining months of the year but it’s been nice that we’ve had as much run off that we’ve had."
