Res­i­dents flee still-ris­ing Rio Grande

Austin American-Statesman - - METRO & STATE -

Flood­wa­ters from the Rio Grande pushed over the banks into the Chim­ney Park RV Re­sort in Mis­sion on Thurs­day, sub­merg­ing much of the prop­erty. Reser­voir lev­els at Fal­con Lake broke half-cen­tury-old records, prompt­ing more dam re­leases and caus­ing more flood­ing down­river.

A replica of a Moai fig­ure from Easter Is­land got a change of scenery Thurs­day as work­ers moved it, a fel­low Moai and a mock Stone­henge from Hunt to the Hill Coun­try Arts Foun­da­tion in nearby In­gram. Adam Koehnke, above, did some of the prep work be­fore the head of the 1,200-pound replica was re­moved. Be­low, from left, gen­eral con­trac­tor Jon Cox, Cavin Felts and Jimmy Lackey work to get the piece into po­si­tion in its new home. In­gram is just out­side Ker­rville.
