Deadly Flooding In Fort Worth Could Lead To New Warning Signs For Drivers


FLASH FLOOD IN THE KILLED THREE PEOPLE IN FORT WORTH MAY HAVE BEEN A 100 YEAR FLOOD EVENT. THE CITY IS ANALYZING THE DATA AT BOTH LOCATIONS THAT CAUGHT THE PEOPLE BY SURPRISE. WE ARE LIVE AT CITY HALL WITH MORE ON THIS? Reporter: WE WERE HERE AT CITY HALL TALKING TO CITY OFFICIALS ABOUT THAT. THERE ARE NO HIGH WATER SIGNS, NO FLASHING SIGNS, NO GATES, NOTHING TO INDICATE THAT THIS COULD BE AT DANGEROUS AREA FOR FLOODWATERS. THEY SAID ONE ROAD HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR FLOODWATER, BUT NOTHING LIKE OTHER LOCATIONS THAT TYPICALLY MAKE THOSE LIST. WE SAW FIRE DEPARTMENT CREWS AND PUBLIC WORKS CREWS OUT SURVEYING THOSE SPOTS ON THE EAST SIDE WHERE THE WATER DRAINS INTO LAKE ARLINGTON. ONE IS A FRONTAGE ROAD, WE WERE TOLD THAT IT HAS NEVER BEEN CONSIDERED A FLOOD PRONE AREA. THE CITY IS GOING OVER THE RAINFALL DATA AND PHYSICALLY GOING OUT TO LOOK AT THE DRAIN TO SEE WHY THOSE LOCATIONS ENDED UP BEING DEADLY FOR DRIVERS. AND LOOKING TO SEE IF THERE’S ANYTHING THAT THEY NEED TO DO TO FIX THAT? LOOKING FOR OBSTRUCTIONS, AND TRYING TO CLEAR THOSE THINGS OUT. AND REASSESSING AND READ PRIOR TOWARD TITHING — PRIOR TAURUS IN. Reporter: THE VICTIMS WERE IN A CAR THAT WAS WASHED INTO A DEFENSE — DEEP COLBERT. — COLBERT.
