Longview Suffers Flooding

In Longview Sunday, several roads were closed from flash flooding.  Local auto dealerships scrambled to move cars before they were swept under.  Hail pounded the Highland Village Apartments on FM 1845, knocking out dozens of windows and damaging several cars in the parking lot.  One couple even had to be rescued from the High Street railroad underpass when their car was swamped by water.  Many say they were overcome by how quickly the storms hit.

The damage to the homes and property could take weeks to assess.  Fortunately, no injuries were reported from the storms.
