Due to extreme weather, the City has joined the State and County in issuing a Declaration of Local Disaster

New Braunfels, TX – On February 14, 2021 Mayor Rusty Brockman signed a Declaration of Local Disaster due to a Winter Weather Emergency for the City of New Braunfels joining the State of Texas and Comal County in issuing similar declarations.

 

The severe winter weather poses an imminent threat of widespread and severe property damage, injury, and loss of life due to prolonged freezing temperatures, heavy snow, and freezing rain statewide. New Braunfels has already seen bitterly cold temperatures, dangerous road conditions, several inches of snow, and power outages. Mayor Brockman urges residents to remain home if they can, to seek shelter, avoid driving if possible, and to take all cautionary measures to ensure the safety of all persons and animals in their care.

 

“Please stay home if you can and take care of your loved ones,” said Brockman. “Check in with those who may be vulnerable to this extreme weather. We are working closely with our partners to ensure the safety of our residents and security of our infrastructure.”

 

The declaration activates the City of New Braunfels Emergency Management Plan. It goes into effect immediately for a period of not longer than seven days unless it is continued or renewed by the City Council.

 

Residents may stay updated on weather conditions by checking the City’s website and following the City on Facebook. A Road Conditions Map is available at www.nbtexas.org/roadclosures..
