Rain Covered Roadways In East Texas Today Could Be Deadly
Turn around, don't drown is the motto tonight. Roadways all over East Texas are covered with water. Traffic is being diverted at the construction at Highway 59 in Lufkin, due to almost 4 feet of water under the railroad trestle. This is causing traffic to back up all over the loop and 59. A tree fell on to the southbound lane of U.S. 69 blocking that road one mile north of Huntington. Reports of a traffic accident on the loop in front of Al Meyer Ford due to the traffic back up, involving 4 vehicles, further proof that staying home tonight is a good option.
The soaking continues in East Texas today, yet football games continue. Please make sure you know how deep the water is you are getting into. If you can't see the road it could some times be deceiving.
