Significant flooding in Marshall, many roads closed

By Ellen Krafve - email

MARSHALL, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas town has had an unusually large amount of rain - so much, in fact, many streets and highways have had to be closed.

The Marshall Police Department has deemed the roadways as hazardous and is asking that citizens of Marshall and the surrounds areas do not travel the roads unless absolutely necessary.

Once water levels go down, they advise drivers to not cross any areas where they see water flowing.
