SAN ANTONIO (July 13, 2021) – More than 19 inches of rain have fallen in San Antonio this year alone, accounting for almost 60 percent of the yearly total. This past week San Antonio saw unusually high rainfall levels, most of it in the western part of the city, specifically in District 6 in areas prone to flooding.
"The rain caused damage to property and concerns about preparedness for future heavy rains," said Councilwoman Cabello Havrda. "We can't predict the next heavy rainfall, but we can respond to the community's needs and make sure to be prepared for the next time it happens," she added.
In response to the concerns the Councilwoman met with community leaders and surveyed some of the damage in the Great Northwest area.
"I've directed District 6 staff to work with City staff to find quick relief for the families affected and to begin finding solutions to prevent future flooding'" she said.

The district office asks families affected by flooding and heavy rains to share damage information and photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. The information shared will be used to inform infrastructure projects in the next City bond. The City tracks areas that are prone to flooding based on FEMA maps and 311 calls for service.
While there are no specific services for flooding victims, there are several ways in which residents affected by the rain can access information regarding City relief.
First, the Neighborhood and Housing Services Department can provide hotel accommodations for three to four nights, if it is an extreme circumstance.
Second, the Department of Human Services has a designated team of benefits navigators that can help residents fill out applications for aid. Residents can connect with a benefits navigator by calling 210-206-5372 or online at the "Request an Appointment" link on this page: https://covid19.sanantonio.gov/Services/FinancialBenefits-Counseling.
"District 6 spotlights the flooding concerns of the entire San Antonio community. The work done to mitigate flood damage in D6 can serve as a model for city-wide planning," said Cabello Havrda.
