I forgot that I had this picture in my phone. Has anyone ever seen a flood gauge this tall before? It's for the purpose of "flash flooding". Yes, flash floods in the San Antonio area can get this high and very fast. Did you know that San Antonio is one of the most flash flood prone regions in North America? I have a link in my bio with a picture of this very same area flooded if you're curious to see.
The flooding is due to the Topographic features of San Antonio and the surrounding areas.
When came to this area I had NO clue about the area being so prone to floods. When you move somewhere new or visit some place on vacation, make sure to research the weather, other natural disasters, and other crazy dangers the area is prone to, lol! 😂
