Several rounds of thunderstorms through Saturday will have the potential to produce flooding rains, and a few isolated hail cores or strong winds are possible. Never drive into flooded areas...turn around, don't drown!
7-22-04 - Two Sherman city workers were partially buried when a trench caved in on Thursday. They were repairing a sewage line along West Brockett Street when a backhoe triggered the wall collapse around 4pm, dumping gravel and debris on top of the two men.
A quick response by coworkers and firefighters saved both men – pulling them out of the trench within 15 minutes. The two workers escaped with only minor injuries, and the crew resumed working on the damaged line.
