Episode Narrative Persistent rainfall over several hours in Collin County resulted in significant flooding in the Nevada, Josephine, and Blue Mound areas. Also, a two car accident in Collin County that killed three adults and injured three more people was the result of hydroplaning.
Event Narrative Several roads were closed in the Nevada, Josephine, and Blue Ridge areas due to flooding. These roads were: CR 590@PR 5337; CR 638@FM 1777; Milton Street in Josephine; CRs 484, 504, 637, 668, 825, and 1216, and SH 1216. Barricades were installed at all of these locations. In addition, the bridge support of SH 5 at the East Fork of the Trinity River in McKinney was being washed out and the bridge had to closed for a few months.
