Additional very heavy rainfall is expected across the Red River
basin both upstream and downstream of Lake Texoma in North Texas
throughout this upcoming Memorial Day Holiday weekend. Nearly all of
the red river's tributaries in southern Oklahoma and North Texas
remain above flood stage. Soils in the Red River basin remain
saturated from this very wet Spring of 2015. Also Lake Texoma on
the Red River and tributary reservoirs to the Red River remain very
high as well from stored flood waters.

Area residents... ranchers... and farmers in northeast Texas and
southeast Oklahoma along the Red River need to closely monitor
weather conditions as well as closely monitor river and lake stages
through the first week of June. If a Flood Warning for major
flooding is issued... be prepared to act quickly to protect
life... property... and livestock.
