Rain received in the last 24 hours has low-water crossings covered by water. 

A long-time township official says this week’s flooding is the worst he has seen in 30 years.

Jack Watson of the Cass Township board reported three roads are closed south of Houston.  Box culverts washed away on Oak Grove and Bennett roads. A low-water slab is gone on Brown Road.

“It’s the worst I’ve ever seen,” Watson said as rain continued to fall.

Workmen were at the scene of Oak Grove attempting to fix it. “The water is so high. We’re putting gravel in and it’s just washing it away. And it’s big gravel,” Watson said.

Members of the Texas County Township Advisory Board are slated to meet Monday night in Houston to discuss the situation.
