News & Events

Cliff Falls
Posted May 11, 2015

The piece of the bluff that was cracked finally fell on May 10, likely as a result of the heavy rain that day. The pictures below were taken by WB resident Emmet McMahan who went out in his paddleboat this morning to photograph this.

The piece that fell is visible on the left side of the second photo. Click on that photo to enlarge.

Better to Be Safe
Posted May 11, 2015

Now that we are in the middle of severe weather season, you might want to consider signing up for an automatic notification system.

Whitney Police has a free system. Before the funnel cloud that was spotted on 1713 in Whitney around 5:50 last night (see photo at right), they sent out a message at 5:05 pm and continued sending updates during the storm. See an example of a message from the Whitney Police. Sign up for this service.

WeatherCall is separate service that costs $9.95 per year. Yesterday, they sent out their first message 7 minutes before the Whitney Police, followed by other messages later. See an example of a WeatherCall message. Sign up for this service.

Both services can notify you via phone call, text and email. In the past, sometimes one service seems to be more reliable and sometimes the other does, although WeatherCall in general seems to be more consistent than the Whitney Police system. Note that when there is a lot of bad weather around, you may get one or two of the notification methods but not all three, so it is a good idea to sign up for all the notification methods you can - phone, text, and email.

For real-time updates, the WFAA website has a radar map that you can view during a storm as do other local television stations.

5K Run/Walk on June 6
Posted May 11, 2015

Operation Greater Love will be sponsoring a 5K Run/Walk on June 6. All funds raised will go towards the building on homes in Whintey for wounded veterans.

The race begins at 8am at the Whitney Elementary School. The entry fee is $25 until May 23, and $30 after that.

For more information and the registration form, see the 5k flier.

Lake Whitney Nearly Full
Posted May 11, 2015

Following the storm at the end of April, the Lake Whitney water level rose 3 feet. Then on Sunday May 10 it rose another 4 feet. Besides water from the rain and the continuing runoff, Lake Granbury is now releasing 17,000 cubic feet per second into Lake Whitney. All of this means that the lake should be full within the next day or so.

To track the lake level, go to the Corp of Engineers website. Scroll down to the Brazos River Basin section then scroll to Whitney. Put your mouse over the first number on that line to see a graph of the water level over the past month.
