NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - In the City of Nacogdoches, Thursday's floods caused more mess than damages.
As soon as the rains stopped, sightseers hit the trails, park, and bridges to look at all the high water. Lanana Creek was pretty impressive, but as water subsided silt, mud, and a gushy mess were left behind.
The SFA Arboretum's trails are a bit muddy, but we're glad to report no damage to plants or outdoor sculptures.
On the other hand, the harvests from the Sprout Garden will stop and for a good reason.
"The water from Lanana Creek that had flooded through the garden had pollutants and heavy metals in it," said Chanelle Angeny, an arboretum worker. Essentially, that water can saturate through the soil, so we cannot replant and harvest for 60 days"
Luckily, there were a few vegetables harvested on Monday before the storm for today's sale.
