As this first round of storms sweep through, flash flooding is possible as we have watches in effect since heavy rainfall is expected. These storms are on the strong side, but severe threat will be more towards later this afternoon into the night as they could become severe out west.
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.
