Garland Public Shooting Range Flooded

I just saw a news feed post on my FB that the Garland Public Shooting Range is under several feet of water due to heavy rainfall anf flooding in DFW. Is Does any one know if Elm Fork is affected as well?

Yikes! It's been flooded a couple times in the past but I don't think even (previously) more than about a foot to 18" inside the building.

With all the berms and dirt work they had to do, they should have just made it 360 degrees and they would have been safe for another 8-10 feet of water!

Hope they can rebuild with little difficulty!

Oh, man! That's a tough especially after going through the last one.

Wow... just watched that video on FB... the fence is gone, looks like the structure for the rifle range is gone. I hope they can rebuild.
