Rains floods East Texas ponds and Sabine River
Longview — The Longview News Journal is reporting: The Texas drought broke long enough this past weekend to get Chad Hendrix of the Glenwood Community good and wet.
“The stock tank broke,” he said, describing his soggy Sunday throwing cement bags onto the spillway of his nearly 4-acre stock pond. “We just tried to stop it. It ate about a 10-foot wide piece of earth, flowing. It dropped the pond about three feet.”
It seems almost paradoxical, with most of Texas remaining under drought conditions, to see overflowing stock ponds, water standing in fields and the Sabine River nearing flood stage.
