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.
DENTON COUNTY, TX -- Three years after the discovery of zebra mussels in Lake Texoma, Texas Parks and Wildlife says the invasive species has been found in Lake Ray Roberts north of Denton.
The discovery was made during DNA analysis of water samples collected from 14 North Texas reservoirs.
While 12 of the samples tested negative, zebra mussel DNA was confirmed in the Lake Ray Roberts and Lake Texoma samples.
Zebra Mussels are currently known to have infested 29 states and more than 600 lakes or reservoirs in the United States.
