A North Texas neighborhood narrowly avoids two natural disasters in less than 24 hours.
Wednesday night, the National Weather Service predicted the river would crest at nearly 49-feet overnight. By Thursday morning, it had topped out at only 41-feet. After being encouraged to evacuate their homes, residents said they were happy no damage was done.
"Like my momma said, something or someone is watching over me," said Melissa McMurray.
A city spokesperson said there was high water in some of the low lying areas near the river Thursday, but no flooding was reported.
