* Emergency management reported flooding of several roadways and
Road closures near streams and creeks and in other low lying and
poor drainage areas. Some of these Road closures were ongoing near
the city of Cleburne and Rio Vista. Some roads are likely
impassable and additional Road closures may occur. Rainfall will
continue today and will likely result in continued flooding of
creeks, small streams and rivers, especially near lake pat
Cleburne and Buffalo Creek.

Cleburne, Keene, Glen Rose, Iredell, Cleburne State Park, Rio Vista
and Walnut Springs.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Stay away or be swept away. River banks and culverts can become
unstable and unsafe.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate Route.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. Water
rises will generally be gradual, but flooding of some low water
crossings and other low-lying areas near rivers, creeks, and streams
is expected.
