An outbreak of severe weather, including multiple tornadoes, swept through Central Texas on April 25, 2015, causing damage across an area on a line from Dublin to Rio Vista, TX. Numerous road closings, power outages, and other property damage in all areas have been reported. 

Region 6 will conduct a response in Rio Vista and Cleburne, TX in ongoing tornado response and recovery efforts. Team Rubicon’s task force will provide roadway clearance, incident management assistance, spontaneous volunteer coordination, and debris removal services to affected communities in coordination with local and state authorities.
