If you see high water, always turn around — don't drown.



    NBC 5 Forecast: Chilly Now, Warmer Weekend
    Much of North Texas received between two and five inches of rain from storms Tuesday and Wednesday, April 23-24.

    A slow moving weather system produced very heavy rain across much of North Texas Tuesday and Wednesday. A Flash Flood Watch was allowed to expire Wednesday night.

    Rainfall totals were impressive Tuesday with some areas of Collin County picking up more than 7 inches of rain. A few areas west of Dallas-Fort Worth picked up over 4 inches of rain overnight.

    What To Do Before the Storm
    Tornado and Hail Safety

    Stay Safe During a Hail Storm
    At Home?
    • Head indoors immediately
    • If time allows, close all drapes, blinds or shades to prevent broken glass from entering your home.
    • Stay away from windows and skylights (any exterior glass) and head to a safe location inside your home, ideally only with interior walls.
    • Cover your head and seek shelter indoors immediately.
    • If you are trapped outside, get to a low-lying area and try to protect your head. Use clothing if it's all you have.
    • Stay inside your vehicle.
    • Slow down or pull over and stop at a safe location. DO NOT stop under a highway overpass. You may be protecting your vehicle, but you could be forcing other people to stop behind you.
    • Turn your back to windows or cover yourself with a blanket, coat or spare clothing to protect yourself from breaking glass.
    • If you have a sunroof, try to find something to protect your head.
