Thunderstorms Cause High Water on Houston Gulf Freeway and Messy Morning Commute

Houston auto crash injury lawyers know how integrally weather and accidents are linked, so whenever there is sever weather in the Houston area, everyone should be on alert. Heavy thunderstorms over the weekend and early Monday morning have caused many traffic delays in the Houston area, and are now moving towards the Southern counties.

There has been more than an inch of accumulated rain in the areas of Downtown Houston, Tomball, Cypress, Jersey Village and Conroe. Unusually high water on the Gulf Freeway slowed traffic for this morning’s commute, but drivers seem to be proceeding with caution and as of yet no accidents have occurred as a result of the inclement weather.

“A line of storms are now racing into our Southern counties. Highway 6 through Brazoria County is just a wet mess”, said KHOU 11 News Meteorologist David Paul. Paul reports that the rain is moving through the Houston area, and that by the end of the day should have moved completely out of the Houston vicinity, helping traffic and commute times get back to normal.

Houston car accident lawyers are pleased that despite the inches of accumulated rain and unpredictable driving conditions, that Houston residents have managed to handle the messy commute with great care. Wet roads make driving less controlled and predictable and often results in accidents. Houston car accident lawyers urge all commuters to drive with caution today, and leave themselves extra time to arrive at their destinations.
