Water flying of H-E-B shelves as Hurricane Harvey approaches Texas

People across Texas are reporting their local H-E-B stores are running out of bottled water, and they're even posting the evidence on Twitter.

KENS 5's Sharon Ko said water was practically cleaned out from shelves at H-E-B on DeZavala Road and the location at Highway 281 and Evans Road.

H-E-B at 1150 N. Loop 1604 West was also packed with customers trying to buy water.

Sams Club said it is waiving membership requirments in South Texas, including in San Antonio, so anyone can go in and stock up on supplies like water and batteries.

KENS 5's Audrey Castoreno also tweeted a video of the nearly bare water section at H-E-B on DeZavala.

However, an H-E-B spokesperson said area stores would continue to replenish their water supplies.

At least one Twitter user in Texas gave up on finding bottled water Thursday:

"There's not a single water bottle at HEB... guess I'm riding out Harvey with some wine," Lauren Stombaugh tweeted.
