AUSTIN (KXAN) — Nearly 6 months after floods ripped through Central Texas, members of the Dove Springs Neighborhood Association went door-to-door in neighborhoods along Onion Creek.

They were asking people what they need, so they know how to help.

“These are my neighbors,” Isabel Rios said. “A lot of them are still living in their driveways. There’s still a lot of need. We still need food. We still need.. you know.. gas, stoves, fridges, electricity in some of the houses. These neighbors need to be out of harm’s way.”

Organizers want to present those needs to the city in hopes residents can get their homes bought out. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
