The creek across from the Corsicana YMCA in Community Park overflowed in 2015 due to heavy rains.

Navarro County suffered severe thunderstorms and flash flooding over the weekend but no confirmed tornadoes, according to Eric Meyers Navarro County’s emergency management coordinator.

“I am currently working with the County Commissioners to access damage to flooded roads,” Meyers said. “With rain fall from three to seven inches in some areas all four precincts have flooding issues.”

The Navarro County Sheriff’s Office reported at least one high water rescue Sunday on NW CR 1250 when a single occupant was saved from a vehicle.

A Texas Task Force Water Rescue Squad was sent to Navarro County by the state and stayed over night Sunday. The swift water team included a Texas Parks and Wildlife game warden unit and was led by Darrell Cobb, assistant emergency management coordinator.

“We will be doing an assessment over the next several days and we will be looking at how the weekend storms have impacted areas already damaged by the October floods. We will then decide if we will submit another local disaster declaration to the state.”
