Top Stories: Dallas And Fort Worth Among Cities With The Largest Population Increases

May 24, 2018

The top local stories this morning from KERA News:

New U.S. Census data shows five of the most populous cities in the country are in Texas.

Dallas and Fort Worth had the third and fourth largest population increases. Each added nearly 19,000 people between July of 2016 and last year. Thanks to that growth, Fort Worth edged out Indianapolis to become the 15th most populous city.

San Antonio had the largest population gain in the country with an increase of more than 24,000 people.

Other stories this morning:

  • A dairy farm outside Fort Worth has closed, in part because of last week's defeat of the farm bill in the U.S. House. K Bar Dairy was under scrutiny by the state for the sale of unpasteurized milk, which would’ve been permitted under an amendment in the failed bill.
  • Our Big Screen team has a summer preview of the films and festivals to check out.
