The City is keeping an eye on all parts of town, but right now is
particularly watching the area around 66th Street and Avenue W.
Tonight, the City will use its public safety callback system to notify
people in that area about the possibility of homes flooding.

Right now the City is working to fill 5,000 sandbags that will be
delivered to areas of town facing severe flooding.

The City is asking Lubbock citizens to watch out for rising water near
and around their home, and to consider finding an alternate place to
stay.

Please call the Lubbock Police Department at 775-2865 if you need
assistance or are concerned about flooding in your area.  Please only
call 9-1-1 in the case of an actual emergency.
