Flooding in the Crossroads continues after more rainfall
Some roads were nearly underwater
VICTORIA, Texas – This week, the crossroads region experienced several inches of rainfall and flash flood alerts.
Above are photos from the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge showing roads nearly underwater.
Several roads in Rockport were so flooded that Rockport resident, Jamison Parker, says it been 13 years since he’s seen this kind of flooding
“ Normally every year we get a bunch of rain towards this time of year, normally all the low spots, I live close to the low spots, normally there’s flooding going across roads but never this bad, I’ve been here in Rockport since 2008 and I’ve never seen it this bad since then,” says Parker.
Some residents with high lifted trucks spent most of their day in Rockport yesterday assisting those who got stranded in the water.
“ They all had lifted trucks and they were driving around and if they saw someone stranded in the middle of the road, they were hooking up a tow strap and pulling them to safety and getting them out of the middle of the road… it’s pretty awesome, this town, they really come together when they need it,” says Parker.
With all this rain, it’s important to remember you never know how deep the water ahead of the road can be. Turn around, don’t drown and stay home to avoid being in a dangerous situation. Call 9-1-1 if you find yourself in a dangerous situation.
Here’s a list of road closures as of Thursday night.
