33 The approaches to the united states highway 259 bridge are inundated. Tens of thousands of acres will flood severely. Complete evacuation of livestock is encouraged. The united states highway 259 bridge will very likely be closed. In addition, texas highway 37, that runs from clarksville, texas to idabel, oklahoma, and texas highway 8, that runs from new boston, texas to critton ridge, arkansas, will likely be closed.
30 Thousands of acres of farm land and pasture flood. Livestock must be evacuated to higher ground. Much of the flood plain is inundated, and preparations for a major flood should be made.
29 Evacuations of some half dozen homes required in the pecan bend area of northeast texas.
27 Flooding will increase on the red river, with much of the flood plain inundated. Ranchers must move cattle and farm machinery to higher ground. Moderate to severe bank erosion occurs.
24.5 Flooding will continue to decrease along the red river, although bank erosion problems will continue. Minor overflow of low banks will continue, especially on the oklahoma side of the river.
