City puts EOC personnel on standby, keeping eye on Lake Abilene


ABILENE, Texas - The city of Abilene is preparing for potential flooding from Lake Abilene.

Communications & Media Relations Manager Alaisha Guerra says city officials have contacted Emergency Operations Center (EOC) personnel and put them on standby.

They're also keeping a close eye on Lake Abilene. While it poses no immediate threat, the lake level is still rising. Guerra says if water from the lake goes over the spillway and into Elm Creek, it would take 24 hours to reach the city.

Cedar Creek and Catclaw Creek have both started to recede, according to the city.
