Severe thunderstorms cause overnight damage in San Antonio

Written by Mike on .

Approximately two inches of rain was recorded at the San Antonio International Airport between the hours of 10 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 19 and 6 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 20 as severe thunderstorms moved throughout San Antonio. The Office of Emergency Management with the assistance of the San Antonio Fire Department (SAFD) and San Antonio Police Department (SAPD) performed preliminary damage assessments and more than 100 homes appear to have been damaged. This morning, the National Weather Service confirmed a tornado touched down in the area indicated in Figure 1, including portions of the 78216 and 78209 zip codes.

The Transportation & Capital Improvements Department (TCI) and Solid Waste Management Department (SWMD) began street-clearing activities around 3 a.m. These crews, with the assistance of Parks & Recreation Department forestry crews, are removing debris from major streets and front yards of residential properties to provide safe access. Residents are invited to add to debris piles along the edge of the roadway within the affected areas through Friday, March 3 and City crews will return to remove debris throughout the week. Additionally, the Bitters Brush Recycling Center, 1800 Wurzbach Parkway, will be open at no charge to affected residents. Residents can dial 3-1-1 to reportweather-related concerns and other non-emergency service requests.

City damage assessment teams will continue to identify damaged structures and coordinate with the Department of Human Services as needed. The American Red Cross has set up a temporary shelter at Blessed Sacrament School.
 
There are more than 30 street closures in the area. An updated list of street closures around San Antonio is available at www.sanantonio.gov Visit DriveTexas.org for an up-to-date list of highway closures from the Texas Department of Transportation.
 
The San Antonio Fire Department reminds San Antonio residents and visitors to "Turn Around, Don't Drown.” A vehicle may stall out in just a few inches of water and a foot or two of water is enough to float a 3,000-pound car. Driving around a barricade when there is water on the road carries a maximum penalty of $2,000 and 180 days in jail, and if a rescue is required, everyone in the vehicle may be charged a fee of $640.
