TX: State park not accepting new camping reservations

ABILENE, Tex. — We’re ending the month of October on a wet note, and this happens to be the wettest October on record for the key city.

The Abilene State Park has faced flooding issues, which prompted an evacuation for all visitors earlier this month. State park officials say the additional rain received today could keep the area closed for awhile. Including today’s rain totals more than 11 inches of rain have soaked the City of Abilene.
