in urban areas where drainage is poor. Up to two inches of rain
have already fallen.

Greenville... Paris... Terrell... Sulphur Springs... Seagoville... Forney...
Athens... Bonham... Commerce... Kaufman... Gun Barrel City... Canton... Wills
Point... Royse City... Sunnyvale... Farmersville... Grand Saline... Mabank...
Crandall and Chandler.

Additional rainfall amounts of one to two inches are possible in the
warned area.

rises will generally be gradual... but flooding of some low water
crossings and other low-lying areas near rivers... creeks... and streams
is expected.
