Williamson County Winter Weather Updates

[Updated at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 17. This page will be updated as news becomes available.]

Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell issued a proclamation declaring a state of disaster for Williamson County on February 14, 2021, due to severe winter weather conditions. The state of disaster shall continue for not more than seven days unless continued or renewed by the Commissioners Court.
 
“We want to impress on the people of Williamson County the importance of staying home and not getting on the roads as much as possible. By staying home, you can do your part to keep other people safe, including our first responders,” said Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell.
 
Williamson County has activated its Emergency Operations Center and will remain active until the winter weather is no longer a threat. Williamson County asks that residents stay home and limit travel as much as possible as all roads have the potential to have dangerous ice formations.
