WIMBERLEY, Texas (AP) — Residents have been lining up today to get back into the small Central Texas town of Wimberley, which was heavily damaged by flash flooding.
Heavy rains pushed the Blanco River out of its banks, destroying or damaging hundreds of homes.
Authorities say a dozen people are missing after flash flooding along the river.
Former Nueces County Commissioner Joe McComb says his son’s wife and their two children are among the missing.
Dana Campbell lives on a bluff above the river. The 69-year-old retired engineer said Monday that the damage left behind by the floodwaters looks the swath of a tornado, with damage “as far as the eye can see.”
