SABINE RIVER (KLTV) - The storm damage from Thursday's heavy rains just keeps getting worse for some East Texans living in low lying areas around the Sabine River.

Residents along River Road south of White Oak are now swamped as the Sabine River continues to pour out of its banks. More rainfall has increased the spill of the river out of its banks. Many are having to get back and forth to their homes by boat now.

River Road is closed on both ends to traffic.
