RVs at the River Ranch RV Resort under Interstate 35 near Highway 46 were left toppled Thursday morning due to the flooding, according to New Braunfels Public Information Officer David Ferguson.

No one was inside the RV that went downstream at the time, and no injuries were reported at the RV park, he said.

Other vehicles had to be moved around to avoid the swollen river after 4-6 inches of rain dropped in parts of the San Antonio Metropolitan area. The water has since receded but New Braunfels has temporarily closed the Guadalupe River.

Ferguson said that as of 6 a.m., New Braunfels firefighters responded to four water-related calls, including the RV resort. The other three were minor and no one was injured, he said.

Two bridges in the area remain closed at this time — the bridges at Gruene Road and Common Street — due to debris.

The Comal River is also closed inside the New Braunfels city limits.
