Feral Hogs: It’s been a few years since feral hogs have been an issue here, though the animals continue to be a problem in other areas of Texas. Locally, the destructive animals’ appearances in populated areas have tapered off. Experts say that’s mostly due to wetter weather in Southeast Texas giving hogs easier access to water without invading local subdivisions. However, Liberty County Agri-Life Extension Agent Roy Flora said the destructive beasts are still around and there is some evidence they are making a comeback in this area. He said the best way to frighten the wild hogs into moving on is by shooting at them, but only if you do not live in an area where gunfire is prohibited. He said the extension service has lots of information on hunting, trapping and eating feral hogs. If you have questions, call the Liberty County Agri-Life Extension Office at 936-334-3230.

Trinity River Readings: We reported the Trinity River at the Highway 90 bridge in Liberty fell below the 26-foot flood stage early last Friday morning. That came after 45 days above flood stage, an unusually long time. During the recent flooding event, the river at the Highway 90 bridge in Liberty first topped the 26-foot flood stage back on October 17. Five days later, on October 22, the river crested at 29.95 feet above sea level. Anything above 29 feet at the Liberty bridge constitutes major flooding. According to the National Weather Service, historical data for the river at the Highway 90 bridge shows the 29.95 foot mark is the fifth highest crest on record. The all-time record crest occurred on September 1 of last year in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. That day, the river topped out at 32.74 feet.
