The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for Comal County in anticipation of storms on Friday and Saturday.

In anticipation of a significant weather event, Comal County’s Department is prepared to clear roadways of debris and respond to any flooding in the area, county spokesperson Cary Zayas said in a statement.

“We encourage all residents to be weather-aware this weekend and prepare to take necessary safety precautions,” she said.

Zayas warned that the eight sirens that run the length of the Guadalupe River to New Braunfels city limits may not be reliable and asks the public not to rely on them.

The county recently assumed responsibility for the maintenance of the sirens.

“We are working diligently to address all software and equipment failure issues,” Zayas said.
