Gillespie County officials reported that due to Thursday evening thunderstorms, some area businesses suffered damage due to the 60-mph winds, recorded by  National Weather Service Meteorologist Aaron Treadway. Fredericksburg Police Chief Brian Vorauer said that various buildings felt the pressure from the storm between the hours of 5-9 p.m. Thursday night.

One business that experienced damage was Hill Country Memorial Rehab, 402 West Windcrest Street, in Fredericksburg.  According to Amanda Stevens, Chief Strategy Officer at Hill Country Memorial, “As the wind picked up and the rain started, we began making sure our teams and facilities were safe.”

The center, which is used for rehabilitation services, and houses outpatient therapy, was closed Friday.  Stevens says that services will be offered soon in an alternate location and the facility is working with the city to open up an alternate location.

Crenwelge Motor Sales, located at 815 W. Main Street, reported one of its windows had been blown out because of the storm.  Cullen Haley, General Sales Manager at Crenwelge Motor Sales, says that plywood was used to cover up broken windows but no damage was experienced to any vehicles.

Central Texas Electric Cooperative reported 799 customers were without power at roughly 4:40 p.m., Thursday.  The company says that within an hour, most customers had their power restored.

Treadway reported 1/2 an inch of rain in the southwest portion of Gillespie County on Thursday.
