Here at TexasHillCountry.com and Texas Media Group, we’re taking the lead in an effort to raise money for those in need within our local communities devastated by recent floods. Our Chief Operating Officer Erin Baxter stated the flood relief goal is currently set at $100,000, and the company will present donation checks to Llano, Burnet, Kingsland, Marble Falls, Junction, and Mason. Come hell or high water, we’re determined to help Hill Country residents.

Collections will process through Arrowhead Bank in Llano and Horseshoe Bay. We work with local government, chambers of commerce, and visitors bureaus all across the Hill Country. Our Hill Country Flood Relief effort hopes to at least make the $100,000 goal if not much more. We’re also unveiling a new Hill Country Strong t-shirt in our store. All donations from our GoFundMe Campaign and proceeds of the t-shirt will go to the city authorities helping Hill Country residents impacted by the floodwaters.

Destructive flooding raged through the Texas Hill Country on Tuesday, October 16, and the rain kept falling. Hundreds of people were evacuated from riverside houses in the towns of Llano, Kingsland, and Marble Falls. Emergency team performed dozens of water rescues, and the flood claimed at least two lives. Homes suffered severe water damage, and some families which didn’t have flood insurance are now facing huge losses.

Flooding remains a concern for many areas. Meteorologists say that through Saturday, as much as an additional 4 inches of rainfall could be experienced in central and north Texas. As of Thursday, flood watches are still in effect. The Colorado River in the area near Lake Travis remains in major flood stage, as does the Trinity River to the north of Houston.
