  of rain has already fallen across particularly parts of Milam,
  Limestone, and Freestone counties.

  Corsicana, Palestine, Athens, Mexia, Gun Barrel City, Rockdale,
  Cameron, Hearne, Groesbeck, Teague, Fairfield, Mabank, Chandler,
  Malakoff, Tool, Mart, Buffalo, Kerens, Franklin and Seven Points.

Additional rainfall of up to an inch is expected over the area and
would likely result in localized minor flooding across parts of the
advisory area.


Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, country roads, farmland, and other low lying

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
