...THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 615 AM CDT FOR
GRAYSON COUNTY...

At 426 AM CDT, local law enforcement reported flooding problems due
to heavy rain in the Pottsboro and Sherman areas. Other areas around
Grayson County are also likely experiencing flooding problems
including water over roadways. Up to five inches of rain have
already fallen in some parts of the county. This rainfall will lead
to excessive water runoff and cause flash flooding. Low-lying areas
are most vulnerable to rapidly rising water. Some low-water
crossings may flood and become impassable.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Sherman, Denison, Whitesboro, Howe, Pottsboro, Collinsville,
Whitewright, Bells, Tom Bean, Knollwood, Dorchester, Eisenhower State
Park, southeastern Lake Texoma, Southmayd, Sadler and Luella.

Additional rainfall amounts of one to two inches are possible in the
warned area.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.
