SAN BERNARD RIVER FLOODING

Thus is the San Bernard River mouth after heavy rain in the watershed above.

Thus is the San Bernard River mouth after heavy rain in the watershed above.

This aerial photo of the mouth of the San Bernard River was taken by Bert Smith, on 5/30/2014, after the recent heavy rains in Brazoria County. Note that several inches of rain could not wash open the clogged outlet – again! Also note the heavy cover of sea weed on the beach, which is plaguing the entire Texas Coast right now.

In sharp contrast to the flooding on the coast, we were in the Wichita Falls area recently, where water is very, very scarce. Lake Arrowhead, where my in-laws live, is almost dried up, and many people who depended on the lake for water have been forced to haul large quantities – or move.
