Victoria OEM Seal

The Victoria Office of Emergency Management is collecting information on flood-related damages to help emergency response officials understand the impact to the community.

City and county residents who experienced damages because of the heavy rainfall that began Tuesday night should fill out the Individual Damage Assessment Tool survey at www.victoriatx.gov/idat. Residents within city limits may also report damages to the Public Works hotline at 361-485-5770.

The Guadalupe River is expected to flood later this week due to heavy rainfall upstream. The National Weather Service predicts that the river will reach major flood stage Thursday afternoon before cresting Friday at 29 feet at approximately 11 a.m. Residents living near the river should prepare and exercise caution.

River level forecasts are subject to change. For the latest information, visit the National Weather Service website at water.weather.gov

Patriot Park in Victoria County will close Friday and remain closed throughout the weekend. Fox’s Bend and Grover’s Bend in Riverside Park will close at 7 a.m. Thursday, and the entire park will close by 8 p.m. Thursday.

Additional weather impacts and flooding are possible as the storm dissipates over the next few days. Residents are encouraged to exercise caution and avoid driving on flooded roadways. For information about road conditions, visit www.drivetexas.org.
