Flood Warning Information
The City of Fort Worth Flood Warning Information is designed to provide real-time flood warning risk levels, in order to protect people from hazardous flood conditions.
Residents can see real-time flood warning information at monitored low-water road crossings. The Flood Threat link shows whether the road crossing is experiencing no known threat ("NONE"), potential conditions for flooding ("CAUTION"), or has overtopped ("AVOID").
See flood information here.
