Uvalde County Commissioners were immersed in a tutorial Tuesday morning on how to navigate a website that compiles data from Uvalde County’s flood early warning system.

The system is designed to notify residents and visitors along rivers and streams in Uvalde County of flooding. Sensors and monitors have been placed along the Nueces, Sabinal, Frio and Dry Frio rivers. Equipment became functional last fall.

Data is accessible online at uvalde.onerain.com.

Sites monitored include Bandera Tower, Boon Slough Dam, Cooks Slough Dam, Dry Frio River at Reagan Wells Church, Dry Frio River near Reagan Wells, Farm-to-Market Road 1120 at Frio River, Frio River at County Road 350, Frio River/Dry Frio River near Uvalde, Leona Damn at the eight-mile waterhole dam, Leona River at County Road 400, Leona River at County Road 429A, Leona River near Uvalde, Nueces River at County Road 408, Nueces River at MacDonald Road, Nueces River at County Road 414 at Montell, Nueces River near Uvalde, Sabinal River at County Road 360 and West Sabinal River at County Road 337.
