Exercise caution at low-water crossings

Turn around, don't drown

By Mary Claire Patton - Digital Content Curator

SAN ANTONIO - Heavy rains cause flooding, especially in areas with low-water crossings.

Find an alternate route for your own safety and to avoid a potential high-water rescue.

Isolated storms are possible Tuesday afternoon and evening, mainly west of San Antonio across the Hill Country and Edwards Plateau.

Hail and gusty winds may accompany these storms and an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

If you happen upon a road with rushing water, turn around.

San Antonio is prone to flash floods and you don’t know how deep water is until you’re in it, even if you’ve driven in that area before.

The map below shows the known low-water crossings in San Antonio. Use an alternate route if you frequent these areas.

KSAT Meteorologist Justin Horne, Digital Journalist Adrian Garcia and Photojournalist Todd Stricker will be in the new KSAT Storm Chaser, livestreaming the action.
