The  National Weather Service has predicted tropical storm force winds along the mid-Texas Coast as early as late tonight (Aug. 24, 2017).  A hurricane warning is in effect from Port Mansfield to Matagorda.  GBRA operations within Calhoun, Refugio, Goliad, and Victoria counties are located in the warning area.  GBRA’s office at Port Lavaca will be closed today as staff begin final preparations for this storm.  Coleto Creek Park also will be closed today. Both offices will reopen after storm damages have been assessed and recovery efforts have been completed to make operations safe for both employees and customers.

GBRA Communications and Education staff disseminates press releases to local media and posts accordingly on the press release page of GBRA’s website: www.gbra.org.  Information also is shared on GBRA’s social media accounts through Twitter “@GBRATX,” Instagram “@GBRATX” and Facebook at “GBRA of Texas.”

The GBRA was established by the Texas Legislature in 1933 as a water conservation and reclamation district. GBRA provides stewardship for the water resources in its 10-county statutory district, which begins near the headwaters of the Guadalupe and Blanco rivers, ends at San Antonio Bay, and includes Kendall, Comal, Hays, Caldwell, Guadalupe, Gonzales, DeWitt, Victoria, Calhoun, and Refugio counties.
