TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas — Several boats taking part in a Trump support parade on Lake Travis in Texas sunk on Saturday, officials said.
Kristen Dark, the senior public information officer for the Travis County Sheriff’s Office, said officials responded to “many emergency calls for boats in distress” during the parade and confirmed that “several boats did sink.”
There were no reports of fatalities or injuries and investigators have not determined how many boats sank on the lake, according to Dark.
The cause was under investigation, but there was no indication of an intentional act.
“We have no reason to suspect foul play in any of these,” sinkings, Dark said.
Weather conditions were generally calm and meteorologist Paul Yura with the National Weather Service in Austin/San Antonio said there were were no storms in the area at the time and winds were generally 10 mph (16 kph) or less.
“The lake should be fairly navigable, without issue at those wind speeds,” according to Yura.
A Facebook page for the event said more than 2,600 people had planned to attend.
Lake Travis is located about 12 miles northwest of Austin.
