River Flood Advisory
Posted on Jan 22nd, 2015

5:00 PM Thu Jan 22: Approx five inches of rain fell in a short time over Brazoria and the San Bernard watershed. The river between the two bridges (FM 521 and FM 2611) is now in bankfull stage and rising. Another report in two hours.
7:00 PM: River still rising out of its banks. Looks like a rough night ahead. See NOAA flood information link at bottom of page.
6:00 AM Fri Jan 23: Water still out of the banks but receeding
8:30 AM Sat Jan 24: Back to normal except for the mud that collected on the docks. 
Items that floated away...
  • Thu Jan 22 - pair of three-year-old red jet skis floated off Randy (979.292.9218) and Judy (979.549.5649) Hester's dock on the river. Give 'em a call if you see them beached somewhere.
  • Swim platform with ladder lodged itself on Bill Long's dock upstream of Hwy 521. Contact Bill Long through his Facebook page. SAT, JAN 24 UPDATE - "The 12’ X 18’ dock section with stainless flip up ladder and four boat whip base brackets is now dis-lodged from my boat lift and moored to my dock. If it’s yours come get it, if it’s not yours and you want it all you need is to boat up/down here (mile north 521) tie on and go. Well, please untie it from my dock first. If I catch you when you’re here I might throw in a couple of kittens and a half can of beer." - Bill Long
  • The bad news - Jim Heiser's white dual-cockpit Seaswirl Striper boat and Black 115 HP Johnson outboard engine, floated off his dock on Thursday. The good news - it made it to the next dock down the river a ways and a kind neighbor Leo Davis winched it off the top of his dock and tied it off. It's now back in Jim's care.
  • 1993ish Yamaha Waverunner, yellow and red over white floated off dock above FM 522 bridge (Black's Ferry Bridge). If found call 979.345.2111

No update at 9:00. Quick question. I live on CR 469 and have just recently moved here. I was wondering if the high tide in the gulf would affect the flooding and if you would let us know what times to expect the high tides

Tidal change on the San Bernard is normally minimal and affected more by the wind, a northerly wind is blowing today and pushing the water out to the Gulf. The first high tide of less than a foot today was at 3:34 am and the next high tide will be at 5:57 pm of slightly over a foot. The only low tide of the day will be at 10:42 am.
