Parmer County Sheriff’s Officers, DPS and Friona Police Department worked traffic. TxDot helped with the removal of the corn from the highway and aided the semi-driver until help came.

Town Talk II

Official Friona weather guy John Gurley, with that big National Weather Service rain gauge in his backyard, reports 2.53" from Tuesday evening's mini-monsoon that blessed our town. Heard a few late scanner reports of a vehicle getting stuck in a ditch and a semi- jackknifed between here and Bovina. There were some high water spots along Highway 60 that Sheriff Geries and deputies and TxDOT tended to. Nice rain. All rain is good. It's fall ya'll. Enjoy. (more...)
