Water continues to rise at Bosque River

Local

The Clifton Police Department says the water in the Bosque River is still rising.

The river is expected to reach 29 inches, which is slightly higher that we saw in 2015. This is still about ten inches lower below levels reached during the flood in 1991.

Police say they do not expect to reach a level where local evacuations are necessary, but they are urging people to take precautions.

Authorities do not expect to reach a level in which local evacuations are necessary, but schools in Clifton and Valley Mills will open two hours later than normal due to road conditions.

According to the Clifton Independent School District, school will be starting at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday. Buses will run two hours behind their normal schedule, and staff should report to their schools by 9:00 a.m.

The Bosque County Emergency Management team says this flood warning will continue until 7:00 p.m. Wednesday.
