Park Cities People, Your 24/7 Weather Center
Or the place you can go should something bad happens tonight, weather-wise.
If this storm is really as (Charles Barkley voice) turrible as people say it might be, we’ll post some updates tonight and tomorrow. Again, this is if anything happens. If not, ignore this and happily enjoy tonight’s all-new How I Met Your Mother.
(But if your street’s flooded and your yard is full of cranium-sized hail, email me a picture and short blurb about what’s poppin off: bradford at peoplenewspapers dot com.)
UPDATE (6:58 p.m.): Want to see an awesome shot of downtown at the gates of Mordor?
UPDATE (6:53 p.m.): Want to see baseball sized hail?
UPDATE (6:45 p.m.): Power’s out in Deep Ellum. No Adair’s tonight it seems.
UPDATE (4:37 p.m.): 26,000 Oncor customers are already out of power in D-FW due to high winds, according to The Weather Channel.
UPDATE (4:15 p.m.): Already! From University Park spokesman Steve Mace:
The Street Department is staging barricades w/ lights at intersections frequently subject to flash flooding, so that if they are needed they will be quickly put in place.
The City’s website has a map of high-water locations (see link below).
Some of the first intersections to flood typically are McFarlin @ Williams Parkway, McFarlin @ Park St., University @ Park, University @ Williams Parkway, Hillcrest @ Southwestern, Hillcrest @Caruth and Amherst @ Durham.
