A flood warning continues for the Trinity River in Liberty, according to the latest river forecast from the National Weather Service.

Liberty County Emergency Management Coordinator Tom Branch said his office doesn’t expect any major flooding issues, but said they would be monitoring the situation.


“Water may be over the road in riverfront subdivisions and residents are urged to use caution when driving on roadways near the river,” said Branch. “More rain is possible this afternoon and tonight. Additional rainfall in the region could create conditions that would warrant additional discharge from the Livingston Dam, and if this occurs, the river level forecast numbers may be adjusted upward.”
