Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Advisory
Issued: 3:50 PM CDT Jul. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth has issued a

* flood advisory for minor flooding in poor drainage areas for...
western Cooke County in north central Texas...

* until 545 PM CDT.

* At 348 PM CDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms that were
producing heavy rainfall across locations just west of Interstate
35. 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. Up to an
inch and a half of rain has already fallen.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Gainesville, Muenster, Lindsay and Valley View.

Additional rainfall of one inch is expected over the area. This
additional rain will make minor flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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

Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:19 PM CDT Jul. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory remains in effect until 7 PM CDT this evening...

* temperature... high temperatures will range from 92 to 101
degrees.

* Heat index... daily maximum heat index values will range from
105 to 109 degrees.

* Impacts... individuals and pets outdoors during peak heating
without adequate shade and/or water may succumb to heat
exhaustion or heat stroke.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Be sure to check on persons with health problems and the
elderly... as they are the most susceptible to heat exhaustion and
heat stroke. Never leave Young children or pets in an enclosed
vehicle... even for a short time... as temperatures can quickly
rise to life threatening levels.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
possible... reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when
possible and drink plenty of water.

To reduce risk during outdoor work, the occupational safety and
health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by
heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke
is an emergency, call 9 1 1.
