Rain, rain won't go away

GREENVILLE — The current deluge shows no signs of letting up anytime soon. Area of North Texas are expected to receive another one to three inches of rain before the weather event finally wraps up sometime this evening.

As of this morning Majors Field, the City of Greenville Municipal Airport, had recorded more than 2.3 inches of rain since noon Tuesday.

The National Weather Service offers the following recommendations to prepare for the potential of floods and flash floods:

— When a flash flood WARNING is issued for your area, or the moment you realize that a flash flood is imminent, act quickly to save yourself.

— Get out of areas subject to flooding. This includes dips, low spots, canyons, washes, and the like.

— Avoid already flooded and high velocity flow areas. Do not attempt to cross flowing streams.

— If driving, be aware that the road bed may not be intact under flood waters. Turn around and go another way. NEVER drive through flooded roadways.

— If the vehicle stalls, leave it immediately and seek higher ground if you can safely. Rapidly rising water may engulf the vehicle and its occupants and sweep them away. Remember, it's better to be wet than dead.

— Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize flood dangers.

— Do not camp or park your vehicle along streams and washes, particularly during threatening conditions.
