Multiple accidents have occurred already throughout southeast Texas and many are due to drivers going around barricades or driving into high water unexpectedly. FM 1485 E. near the San Jacinto River and Harris County line is underwater and impassable.
DriveTexas.org shows flooded areas, crashes, areas likely to flood, and road construction. Remember, it only applies to state maintained roads, NOT county or city maintained – you may still run into high water there without knowing in advance. Rescues occurred all evening and throughout the night. Some were from homes and some were from flooded vehicles. It’s not worth the risk.
