FALFURRIAS, Texas — As the water boil advisory in Brooks County continues, many residents are finding it difficult to find fresh water.
However, one family is stepping in to help provide some relief.

Mike Munoz says he realizes the struggle when it comes to finding fresh water during a boil advisory and especially when the shelves at the grocery stores are empty.

That's why Munoz, owner of Munoz Ranch, decided to open up his ranch so that way folks can take water from his well.

“Pretty much to help each other out. I know if I were in that situation other people would have helped out the same way,” said Munoz.

He says during these hard times he is willing to help with as many jugs as people need.

“We had a few ranchers that came out here filled up 400 gallons for their cows,” said Munoz.

Munoz says this is something he wanted to do for his community and it will not cost residents a cent.

“Everybody is thanking us, you know, whoever shows up they offer us money I say no I don’t need no money, I’m just here to help,” said Munoz.

Folks over at the ranch located in Falfurrias say if you would like to stop by for freshwater you would need to call 361-474-5788 to set up a time to have your materials filled.
