Heavy rain evokes memories of May 2015 flood in Wimberley

Debris still lines parts of the Blanco River in Wimberley, nearly 11 months after flooding killed 12 people. The river did not rise to anywhere near the level it did Memorial Day weekend 2015 during the weekend's flooding, but people are still cautious.

Debris still lines parts of the Blanco River in Wimberley, nearly 11 months after flooding killed 12 people. The river did not rise to anywhere near the level it did Memorial Day weekend 2015 during the weekend’s flooding, but people are still cautious.

“I thought, ‘Do I want to live here anymore? I don’t want to go through this again, ever,’” said homeowner Susan Delnostro.

Delnostro’s home was damaged in the flood, and is almost finished rebuilding.

“The house was a mess, everything had to go,” she said about the damage.

The water reached six feet insider her home, even though she does not live in a flood plain. Delnostro and other Wimberley residents are keeping an eye on the weather at all times.

“I am always watching the weather, every day, every evening, every morning, I check the weather,” she said.

Wimberley and Hays County schools were closed Monday with some roads closed due to the threat of flooding.
