Heavy Rain Leads to Dozens of High Water Rescue Calls

Quite a busy, rainy Monday Morning for San Antonio Firefighters.

“We have nearly forty water rescue calls that have come in” the San Antonio Fire Department’s Woody Woodward told KTSA News, describing just how busy firefighters were between 5 and 9 AM.

Everyone involved in the rescues is ok–though at least one turned out to be a little intense.

“We had a van with five individuals–including four special needs children–that were stuck in that van” Woodward said.

Even as the heavy rain moves away, the damage has been done–and caution is going to be the key for much of the day.

“We remind everybody again please… turn around, don’t drown. Slow down out there on the roadways, we have a lot of standing water” Woodward said.
