1248 PM CDT FRI AUG 18 2017

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth has issued a

* Flood Advisory for Minor Flooding in Poor Drainage Areas for...
  Southern Grayson County in north central Texas...

* Until 245 PM CDT.

* At 1247 PM CDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms that were
  producing heavy rainfall across southern Grayson County. Excessive
  runoff from these thunderstorms will cause minor flooding. Areas
  that are low lying or usually experience poor drainage are most
  likely to experience flooding. This means some low water crossings
  in the region may become impassable. A few roads are still closed
  due to the heavy rain that we have received during the last
  several days. Do not drive around barricades.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
  Sherman, Van Alstyne, Howe, Collinsville, Gunter, Tom Bean,
  Dorchester and Tioga.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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

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

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