Flood threat, CAPCOG training prompt KXAN story

Thursday, October 31, 2013


Austin-area KXAN meteorologist and reporter David Yeomans (left, white shirt), interviews Jim Barho of Burnet County's Office of Emergency Management.

As area and statewide experts convened in Austin for CAPCOG's Oct. 30, 2013, training, Disaster Debris Management 101: Tools for Local and Regional Governments, NBC affiliate KXAN-TV dropped by for a timely story on reducing the impact of floods. 

Meterologists warned of heavy rains and potential flooding in Central Texas - including Austin - on Oct. 30. CAPCOG's training - focused on planning, protecting public health and natural resources and ensuring disaster debris cleanups meet state and federal funding requirements - offered an opportunity for KXAN to get an expert's take on keeping potential flood debris at bay and out of the way.
