Leaks in Areas of Hidalgo Co. Courthouse Create Mold Problem

Posted: Updated:

EDINBURG – During the late-June storms in the Rio Grande Valley, rain seeped into the Hidalgo County Courthouse.

Water made its way through the holes of the aging 1950s structure and created high humidity levels to form.

The county is now dealing with a spore problem in the courthouse.

People showing up to jury duty Monday noticed the silent hallways on the third floor as well as a sign reading:

“Due to the mold crisis we are experiencing, the Hidalgo County Probate Court and its office will be closed until further notice.”

Valde Guerra, the county’s executive officer, explained that once the rain was gone, it lingered creating moisture in Court at Law No. 1, 4 and in the probate court.
