TX JEEP FLOOD

We can’t say it enough! Turn Around Don’t Drown! The video, shared with KENS 5 by viewer Kim Jacob, shows the Jeep being swept away in the Guadalupe River. Heavy rains had hit the area on Tuesday.

According to Kim Jacob who originally uploaded the video, “The First Crossing on River Road in New Braunfels Texas at Jerry’s Rentals. This is just how fast and dangerous the canyon can be. It just happened literally 5 minutes ago. A guy wanted to check his tent, so he parked his jeep and waded across the bridge when it was just starting to run and only knee deep. (After being told not to and that the canyon was going to flood.) All at once a huge wall of water came and the video shows the result. We went down into the campgrounds to tell him his Jeep was being washed away. He came and sat on the tiers in front of our house to watch it go.”
