Acting on the authority given to counties under the Texas Constitution, Victoria County Judge Ben Zeller issued a Declaration of Local Disaster for Victoria County in the face of increasingly severe drought and fire conditions, and extended forecasts from the National Weather Service that give little chance of rain over coming weeks.
