SHERMAN - Raging floodwaters forced the evacuation overnight of several residents in Sherman, Texas.
Radar estimated rainfall totals showed nearly 5.7" in the past 12 hours.

What appears to be damage from high winds was reported in Hunt County at the Sunset RV Park.  Photos shared from Hunt County Scanner show several overturned RVs and downed tree limbs.  There were no injuries reported.
