New Braunfels closes Comal River due to heavy rains

The City of New Braunfels closed the Comal River due to a heavy amount of rainfall that happened in the past 24 hours. With more heavy rain in the forecast, the city isn’t taking any chances.

Water had went over the famous tube chute dam and the clarity of the water is poor as well as the fast flowing current. The city will wait for the water to recede in efforts to keep the public safe.

The New Braunfels Police Department will be monitoring the area for any trespassers that feel they want to take a dip.
