Flash Flood Warning for Navarro County until 2:15 AM. This includes all of Navarro County, Corsicana, and Interstate 45. Heavy rain will quickly cause flash flooding to develop due to saturated soils from the 15-20 inches of rain that fell last week. Don’t drive into flood waters and don’t think you can drive into flood waters because you drive a big truck. If water can knock a train over it can easily knock over your small truck.
