September 2019

Found 1 blog entry for September 2019.

Before moving to Austin from another city, you've probably been told of some of the downsides. Our traffic has gotten pretty bad, summers are hot, and allergies can be tough. A lesser-known concern to be aware of is Austin flooding. Central Texas is such a flash flood-prone region that the National Weather Service sometimes refers to our area as “Flash Flood Alley.”

However, you needn't be too worried. Flash floods are generally most dangerous when driving, not at home. In fact, 75 percent of Texas flooding deaths occur in vehicles. Make sure to stay off the road when flash floods are predicted. 

As far as real estate is concerned with Austin flooding, the majority of localized flooding doesn't exceed a few road closures in your neighborhood.
