Abilene Reporter News (Newspaper) - June 29, 1954, Abilene, Texas CLOUDY, WARM Wift ^bilfne TReporter-iBtettii , "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT GOES"—Byron MOMING J. VOL. LXIII, NO. 375Auocuand Preu (AP) ABILENE, TEXAS, TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 29, 1954 —TWENTY PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS PRICE DAILY 5c, SUNDAY lOc Biggest Rio Grande Flood Sends Thousands to Hills DEL RIO, Tex., June 28 (AP>—-Like a mad giant, the Rio Grande crushed bridges tonight, raged into cities and sent thousands of norder people fleeing to high ground. The border stream was on its greatest rampage in history and more destruction was due tomorrow. At least 13 were dead. They were not river-wise border people but unwary residents of a usually-dry ranch country town caught in a flash flood. It was such flash floods as that which took 13 lives and left several missing at Ozona that transformed the Rio Grande into a vindictive giant. The American approach to the international bridge at Del Rio was swept away like kindling wood tonight. Yesterday the Mexican approach gave way. Across the river, half the city of Ciudad Acuna was under water. At least 15,000 people huddled on nearby hills. The American Red Cross, after getting Pentagon and state department clearance, began flying in water, medical supplies, food and clothing. Downstream 55 miles at Eagle Pass, both the railroad bridge and the American approach to the international highway bridge were swept away at 9 p.m. tonight.

Rains of up to 22 inches, aftermath of a hurricane which lashed the Mexican coast last week and fanned turbulent weather into South and Southwest Texas, had sent Rio Grande tributaries on a rampage. The homeless at Ciudad Acuna were reported without drinking water. Muddy, debris-heavy flood waters ran several feet deep in business streets. Despite predicted history-i making crests, the Rio I Grande was not expected to ;! take many, if any lives. Riv-? er bottom farmers had warning. River-wise city residents quickly evacuated. For example, the border river rose to 40.7 feet here today without great damage on Uic American side, because lowlands were evacuated. Then the level began falling but a new crest of 40 to 42 feet was expected tomorrow. The stage, generally reckoned from the river bed. was even greater where the river runs between steep, narrow banks such as at Langtry, Tex. But along the Pecos and Devil’s rivers which empty into the Rio Grande and the usually-dry draws in the sheep and ranch country north of here, it was different. Warnings Given Sirens screamed, church and school bells rang, and much of Ozona’s population turned out to sight - see as Johnson’s Draw, which cuts through the middle of the town of 2,885 people, rose higher and higher at dawm today. Despite these warnings, lives were lost as the waters rose. Thirteen were bebeved dead and at least five missing. The state highway patrol issued a list of 12 confirmed dead at Oi-(ma. They were: Mrs, Francis Bidiacka; a daughter, name unknown: Janice Bidla-cke, 8, bebeved a daughter of Mrs. Bidlacke; Gany Bidlacke. 20 months, bebeved to be a son of Mrs. Bidlacke; Betty Jeffers, 20; Harold Jeffers. 2: Donna Yvette Jeffers, age unavailable; DcHina Jean Clapp. 14: David Clapp, age unavailable; and a Mrs. Holly and her two children, (An unconfirmed report received late Mwiday night by Howard Kemper.
