...PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT...

...On September 07, 2018 a slow moving surface front coupled with
ample tropical moisture created a perfect setup for heavy rainfall
and flash flooding across portions of the Permian Basin, Trans-
Pecos, and Big Bend region. Multiple locations received well over
an inch of rain with some of the highest amounts falling across
Midland and Odessa. Major flooding was reported throughout both
cities and many high water rescues occurred. This was one of the
most significant flooding events that has happened in the Permian
Basin since 2012.
