Amazing video recorded on Tuesday shows just how relentless the Guadalupe River can be after a storm. The video shows a Jeep pushed down the river like a toy car.
It happened just north of New Braunfels, near River Road next to Jerry's Tubes. Thankfully, no one was inside that vehicle but it goes to show how powerful the water is.
Kim Jacob filmed the video and said that the driver had just parked there as they went to go check on their tent. They came back to discover that the vehicle was swept away.
Locals in New Braunfels said that they've seen everything get swept away at some point. After Tuesday's rain, folks gathered to see the rushing river now several feet higher than usual, but most people know to keep their distance.
Shane Wolf manages Rockin R River Rides and said that the river will be back down in a matter of hours, but agreed that Tuesday's storm showed the power of the water and why it shouldn't be underestimated.
"So many people here are new to Texas for one, and to the rivers. They just don't understand or appreciate it. And that's what we're trying to get out there, this is nothing to mess with by all means," Wolf said.
Authorities did have to make one water rescue. Thankfully a woman was saved, but with more rain in the forecast, it could be a long week in New Braunfels.
