Winter Storms Drench Roadways Across East Texas

Heavy rains throughout Henderson County and parts of Smith County left minor flooding and slick roads Friday morning. Areas like Noonday and Athens felt the brunt of the storm.

The late winter storm left several patches of hail along Highway 175, just east of Frankston, and slowed traffic in La Poynor. Heavy rains also drenched roadways across Henderson County, leaving several pastures partially flooded outside Athens.

   The storm is expected to continue east, making its way out of East Texas by Saturday morning.
