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.
8-4-04 - Denison Firefighters may have been out of practice, but they found success with the Fill the Boot campaign for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. During the 2nd weekend in July, firefighters stationed outside Denison’s Wal-Mart collected more than $4,600 for MDA.
It was the first time they’d taken part in the effort in 15 years, mostly due to a city ordinance that banned soliciting in the street. In the past, firefighters would man street corners and wade into traffic taking donations. Similar laws have reduced the amount of fundraising for MDA in Dallas, which means Denison’s efforts were much needed.
