Several Freese and Nichols offices wore blue to call attention to Texas Flood Awareness Week.

Gov. Greg Abbott set aside May 21-25 as Texas marks the third anniversary of the Memorial Day flooding in 2015 and the events of Hurricane Harvey last year.

He encouraged people to respect the power of water.

“It is crucial that Texans understand and respect the power of water. Planning and preparing are the keys to reducing the loss of life and property,” the proclamation reads.
