Flooding causes major issues in Deep East Texas

“I got up about 6:30 this morning as usual,” Jasper County resident Whitney Fountain said. “My husband said that we didn’t have a yard. And I come out yeah, we didn’t have a yard.”

Across Jasper County, water covered roads closed some major highways like U.S. Highway 96 near Brookeland for hours.

Sandy Creek came out of its banks, flooding a park in the City of Jasper and covering parts of FM 777. Sean Ford and other men stopped to try to guide traffic away before authorities arrived.

“No injuries or deaths at this time,” Allen said. “We do have several businesses and homes that have water damage. We have a lot of situations where we won’t even know what we got until the water recedes.”
