After all night raining in Hutto, the City of Hutto is urging citizens to use caution when traveling, following the Turn Around, Don’t Drown protocol.
Hutto public works teammates worked throughout the night managing water, sewer and drainage systems. Hutto City officials will be constantly assessing the situation and ask travelers to use caution, especially along
- CR 199

- F.M. 1660 N to Metcalfe
- Limmer Loop, and

“Rain is expected to continue throughout the week, but will likely lessen Tuesday evening and Wednesday, Oct. 17. For public safety, citizens are encouraged to minimize recreational use of water ways to mitigate risk of fast flowing water incidents. If citizens need assistance, we urge them to call Hutto Police Department using either 911 or the non-emergency number at (512) 846-2200 depending on the nature of the need,” said Eliska Padilla, Hutto public information officer.
“I have authorized our public works crews to operate throughout the week managing the water, sewer and drainage systems,” said City Manager, Odis Jones. “Our staff is trained to respond to and manage this kind of weather. Please use caution as we do the best we can to provide aid to the public, while working with the aging and decayed streets and drainage system we have,” said Jones.
