San Saba County aids victims of Hurricane Harvey in Woodsboro area

by Michelle Whitley

When Hurricane Harvey made landfall on August 25th, folks around Woodsboro woke up the next day to no electricity, water, sewer, no phone lines or cell phone service, as well as no gasoline for their cars or their generators.

San Saba County came to their aid - Will and Wesley Robertson, Billy Ray Walker and Farrel Whitley left the following week with a load of fuel as well as cash donations and were able to provide over 1100 gallons of fuel to folks in need. The people were amazed that this was a gift from people they didn't know.

The situation was grim as reflected in his several letters to the adjutant general from Regency.
