NEW BRAUNFELS, Tx (KXAN) - The City of New Braunfels has closed the Guadalupe and Comal rivers on an opening weekend of summer.
The area is not immune to flooding. During the summer of 2010, a man was killed and a number of people were rescued when the rivers overflowed their banks.
Today's advisory comes during a heavy rain storm.
"Due to recent heavy rains received overnight and throughout the A.M. hours, recreational waters including the Comal and Guadalupe Rivers in the city of New Braunfels have been temporarily closed for safety purposes," said Capt. John McDonald. "Due to recent flash flood warnings, heavy rains, and poor water visibility, the decision was made to temporarily close the Comal and Guadalupe rivers, until further notice."
