Wichita Falls & Wichita County Officials Urge Residents to Monitor Conditions

Wichita Falls, Texas- Officials from the City of Wichita Falls and Wichita County are urging all residents to monitor weather updates and news reports on television, radio, newspaper, social media and websites related to the possibility of severe flooding.

            Anyone can also sign up to receive free emailed briefings and press releases by going to the City's website, wichitafallstx.gov, click on Notify Me in the left-hand column of the homepage, follow the prompts and choose City Press Releases.

            Area Emergency Management personnel have been working closely with the National Weather Service (NWS) to determine the severity of the threat of flooding in the City and County. The NWS feels that the likelihood of severe flooding is possible beginning late Saturday night (May 23rd) and running through early next week.  For questions please contact the Emergency Operations Center at 761-7909.

From the Wichita Falls Police Department:

All residents in Wichita Falls please be advised that the only City representatives who will go door-to-door for mandatory evacuations are uniformed Wichita Falls Police Officers or Fire Fighters. Anyone else appearing at a home or apartment complex advising residents to evacuate are not operating with the authority of the Emergency Operation Center and may be planning on committing an illegal act such as a burglary when a resident leaves the property. Please contact local Law Enforcement and report this person.
