The Woods of Lake Travis Homeowner’s Association Marina was flipped upside down in a “micro burst” this evening. It appears to be damaged/destroyed from the photos.
Heavy rains in and around Austin have prompted the LCRA to partially open two floodgates on Tom Miller Dam. That dam forms Lake Austin, which flows into Lady Bird Lake. People near or downstream from the dam should expect stronger currents while the releases continue.
LCRA Hydromet shows that we have gotten over 1 inch across the basin. We need it so continue to bring it!
We suggest tying up or anchoring around Starnes Island.
Even on a Wednesday this will be a good show!
Get out on the lake on a week day! Beat the heat!
This is an excellent article on why people can look right at another boat or vessel and not see it. We have said it for years, but you have to have a swivel head at all times.
