37 Major flooding reaches the slab of lowest homes near the bridge. Flow reaches the FM 1704 bridge floor. Widespread flooding can isolate and drown livestock. Numerous roads and bridges are flooded and extremely dangerous.
33 Moderate lowland flooding is well into the flood plain and can cut off and drown livestock. Low roads and bridges are severely flooded and dangerous. Flow is above the low steel of the FM 1704 bridge and threatening the bridge floor.
32 Major flooding is well into the flood plain cutting off livestock and flooding low roads and bridges in the flood plain. Flow reaches low steel of the FM 1704 bridge.
28 Moderate lowland flooding is well into the flood plain and can isolate and drown livestock. Lowest roads and bridges are flooded and dangerous.
27 Moderate lowland flooding is well into the flood plain threatening to cut off livestock. Lowest roads and bridges are flooded and dangerous.
23 Minor lowland flooding is into lowest areas of the flood plain with no significant damage.
22 Flow is into low areas of the flood plain with no significant damage.
21 Minor flooding is into lowest areas of the flood plain with no significant damage.
17 Flow exceeds lowest areas of the banks.
