Flood Advisory
National Weather Service Fort Worth TX
1132 AM CDT SAT JUN 24 2017

Dallas TX-
1132 AM CDT SAT JUN 24 2017

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth has issued a

* Flood Advisory for Rapid Creek and Stream Rises in...
  Dallas County in north central Texas...

* Until 130 PM CDT.

* At 1129 AM CDT, Doppler radar and rain gauges indicated heavy
  rainfall had fallen since midnight, which is causing urban and
  small stream flooding across Dallas County. Automated rain gauges
  in the area have already reported 1 to 3 inches across the county,
  with isolated higher amounts. This means some low water crossings
  in the region could be impassable. Heavy rainfall is coming to an
  end, but it will take additional time for flood waters to recede.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
  Dallas, Garland, Irving, Grand Prairie, Mesquite, Carrollton,
  Richardson, Rowlett, Desoto, Grapevine, Cedar Hill, Wylie, Coppell,
  Duncanville, Lancaster, Farmers Branch, Balch Springs, University
  Park, Sachse and Seagoville.

Additional rainfall of upward to one half inch remains possible,
but rain areas should continue to diminish through early
afternoon. Any additional rain will only exacerbate ongoing, minor
flooding. Be especially cautious around flashy creeks such as White
Rock, Duck, and other well-known creeks within the county.


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

Keep children away from storm drains, culverts, creeks and streams.
Water levels can rise rapidly and sweep children away.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.
