Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
8-18-04 – The City of Sadler, Texas is working to clear up a problem with the town’s water supply. Residents say, for the past two weeks, their tap water looks brown, scratches their throats, burns their eyes and smells like bleach.
The Mayor of Sadler, Tommy Filip, says there is too much chlorine in the system. The city is flushing it out and expects the water to clear up by Friday or Saturday.
Some Sadler residents complain the problem took too long to fix. They also say they have seen water problems in the past and are calling for a permanent solution.
