!!!NEWS ALERT!!!

BRISTOL-TO-TELICO EVACUATION PLANNED
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has announced flooding is expected along the Trinity River corridor from Bristol to Telico in the next 24 hours. NOAA and Ellis County officials are calling for a voluntary evactuation of that area based on NOAA predications that the river will reach 36 feet tonight and is expected to exceed the 1990 flood level of 37.9 feet before it crests.
“This past April, the water level rose to 35.9 feet and the levy held firm,” said Ellis County Judge Chad Adams. “But in 1990, when the water was at 37.9 feet, the levy gave way.”
The Ellis County Sheriff’s Department is working with area volunteer fire departments to notify residents in the affected areas.
Shelter will be available for displaced residents at the First United Methodist Church in Ennis, 300 N. Sherman.
Citizens are encouraged to monitor weather reports and in an emergency, call 911 , local police or fire or the Ellis County Sheriff’s office at 972-937-6060.
