SEGUIN, Texas – Son's Island, a local island with a tropical vibe, will soon be out of commission due to the draining of Lake Gonzales, Meadow Lake, Lake Placid and Lake McQueeney.

The island cabanas have less than a month before the water is drained.

There's still opportunities for cabana rentals prior to the draining, according to the island's Facebook page.

Starting Sept. 16, Lake Gonzales will be dewatered and the process will continue upstream to Meadow Lake, then Lake Placid, ending with Lake McQueeney.
