SHERMAN, TX -- Emergency management officials in Grayson County are also staying on top of the approaching storm.  KTEN's Chris Severy reports.

Tuesday, there was a statewide conference call with emergency managers and forecasters with the National Weather Service.  State emergency managers in Austin decided to pre-place response teams in places like Lubbock, Amarillo, Wichita Falls and Dallas-Fort Worth.  Grayson County's Emergency Manager Sarah Somers said, "We prepare like we may not be able to get assistance from the state or FEMA for some number of days and we'd like our residents to do the same.  Stop and think what if I don't have access to power?  What if I don't have access to water?  What if I can't leave my home for an extended period of time?"  There is another call Wednesday afternoon to get the latest updates.
