Persons having interests in the Sabine River Basin below the
Toledo Bend Reservoir are hereby advised that at 6 AM on Sunday,

experience significant rises in elevation in a short period of
time.

The Sabine River Authority of Texas and the Sabine River

informed and staying safe during a rain event. Interested persons
should monitor current river and reservoir levels since the Sabine
River could reach flood stage and evacuation of persons, animals
and property may become necessary.
