GRAYSON CO., TX -- Emergency Managers across Texoma are keeping a close eye on the latest forecast and conditions.  Heavy rains could cause widespread flooding across Texoma through Tuesday night and Wednesday.

At the Grayson County Emergency Operations Center, Emergency Management Coordinator Sarah Somers is keeping a close eye on the latest forecasts, including regular conference calls with the State Emergency Operations Center in Austin.  Somers said, "They provide us with National Weather Service briefings specific for our own area so that we can look at what kind of impacts to prepare for them locally as best we can.  Somers also wants to remind people of the saying, 'turn around don't drown.'
