Cameron County judge signs disaster declaration in response to recent severe weather
Cameron County Judge Eddie Trevino Jr. signed a disaster declaration Friday in response to the flooding seen in the county as a result of the recent rains.
The disaster declaration goes into effect immediately and will last for a week. Once those seven days are over the Cameron County Commissioner’s Court can renew it.
According to the National Weather Service, Cameron County remains in a Flash Flood Watch Advisory and is classified as a high risk for excessive rainfall, the news release stated. This can lead to low-lying and flood-prone areas in the county to receive additional flooding.
All county residents are encouraged to avoid unnecessary travel and report any property damage online.
