Eclipse Week: Central Texas could make millions because of the eclipse. Will businesses be ready?

A total solar eclipse will cross North America on April 8th. Central Texas cities, including Austin, will be some of the best places to watch in the country. All this week, the KUT Newsroom will be reporting on this once- in- a-lifetime event in Morning Edition, All Things Considered and of course at KUT-dot-ORG. This morning, we’ll kick off our coverage by looking at how Central Texas businesses are bracing for a large influx of people. Larger cities are excited about the economic benefits…  but smaller ones may not be able to handle the crowds. 

KUT’s Maya Fawaz and Luz Moreno-Lozano having been checking in to see how central Texas cities are handling it. We’ll start with Maya out in Hays County.
