Public Information Statement

Statement as of 2:37 PM CDT on May 24, 2015


... Major flooding threat increasing on the Red River...

... Latest Red River stages and forecast crest information...

Additional very heavy rainfall is expected across the Red River
basin both upstream and downstream of Lake Texoma in North Texas
through Memorial Day. 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... southwest Arkansas... northern Louisiana... and southeast
Oklahoma along the Red River need to very closely monitor weather
conditions as well as closely monitor river and lake stages through
the first week of June. As heavy rainfall develops through Memorial
Day Monday across much of the Red River basin... major flooding will
develop on the Red River and its tributaries across North Texas and
south Oklahoma.

similar to that of may of 1990.
