LIBERTY, November 5, 2015 - Trinity River Authority has once again made a slight increase in the release at the Lake Livingston in order to bring down the lake level.
The release is now at 56,900 cfs.
Currently we are not receiving any reports of flooded homes in the river basin and do not anticipate any serious issues over the next day or so.
There is a heavy rain threat in the forecast tomorrow and Saturday so residents along the Trinity River are urged to monitor local media for updates.
At 2 pm the Trinity River in Liberty is at 28.4 ( 2.4 feet above flood stage ) and is projected to crest at 29.2 on Sunday or Monday.
The stage at Moss Bluff is currently at 13.99 ( 1.7 feet above flood stage) with a rise to 14.2 by next Monday.
Residents that were affected by last weekends rainfall event are urged to contact the Liberty County Office of Emergency Management at 936-334-3219 and add your name to the list for potential FEMA assistance in case our county receives federal assistance. That decision will come later and we will advise everyone once we have an idea of what,if any, assistance is available to affected residents.
