FANNIN COUNTY, Texas (KTEN) — Seventy Texas State Guard personnel have been assigned to survey road damage in Fannin County.

Eight to twelve inches of rain have fallen in Fannin County since the beginning of May.

“It's made the roads impassable for some of the residents as well as first responders,” said Fannin County Office of Emergency Management’s Troy Hudson. 

After almost a month of nonstop rain, members of the ground support unit is working with the Office of Emergency Management to assess the status of county roads.

The team will record all damages and report back to the state to determine the extent of disaster.

"We've been kind of marching across Texas, helping communities assess damages, see where the problems are, so they can define the problem and bring the proper resources in," said Maj. Michael Tressider.
