    For anyone who hasn't had a chance to make it to the rivers lately or for those who DO NOT know where to check; here is the updated info for the Trinity, Navasota, and San Bernard rivers. Haven't been to those lately myself, but, gotta trust the NOAA.

    Right now the Brazos is 37.81 feet measured at Richmond, TX. Flood stage is at 48 feet. Be safe out there!! At various points all the previously mentioned rivers (less the Brazos) are currently at some degree of crest.

    The following is the low-down from the NOAA
    ===========================================================
