Keep an eye on high water locations on Houston area roads and other trouble spots for drivers, as Tropical Storm Beta brings flooding rains.

Houston police shut down Highway 288 to traffic in both directions between Loop 610 the I-45/Hwy 59 interchange. I-45 has been closed in both directions at Main due to high water. It's the second time today the road has been shut down. Remember, if you come across high water, don't attempt to drive through it. Turn around, don't drown.
