AUSTIN (KXAN) — Many parts of Texas, including Austin and Central Texas, are facing severe weather over the weekend. Different parts of the state expect different forms of severe weather over the course of the next few days, including flooding, snow, ice rain.
As a result Governor Greg Abbott has ordered the Texas State Operations Center (SOC) to increase the levels of readiness. Additionally, he has also made state resources available to assist local officials in their response efforts.
“I encourage all Texans to stay alert to potentially hazardous road conditions and changing weather patterns,” Gov. Abbott said in a press release. “Texas is prepared to respond and offer the necessary assistance to local communities as they deal with the impact of this storm.”
