Spilling its banks...

The Frio River breached its banks at the FM 1581 bridge early Monday morning, September 17 following a weekend deluge caused by a tropical disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico that came ashore late last week. The weather system forced many Friday night varsity football games to be rescheduled or cancelled altogether and resulted in several road closures. In Dilley, West FM 117 was closed, FM 1581, the E. IH-35 access road at the Frio River and West FM 140 from FM 187 to Uvalde was also shut down due to water over the roadways. Several county roads along the San Miguel Creek were also closed.
