South Lubbock intersections reopened after heavy rainfall forces closures
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Roadways and intersections have been reopened, according to emergency officials, after flooding from heavy rainfall shut down vehicles and forced streets to close from 114th to 130th Streets, on Quaker, Indiana and University Avenues.
The Lubbock Police Department asked drivers to avoid a large portion of south Lubbock, Tuesday afternoon, after multiple vehicles got stuck in water on the roadways.
All right, folks. We need you to avoid Quaker, Indiana, and University between 114th Street and 130th Street. There's a ton of water on the road, and vehicles are getting stuck. Find another route, or better yet, give it some time for the water to drain! pic.twitter.com/YGuDavfHWL— Lubbock Police Dept. (@LubbockPolice) May 24, 2022
LPD initially closed traffic at the intersection of 125th Street and Indiana Avenue due to high water from severe storms.
The National Weather Service issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Lubbock County until 6:15 p.m. A Flash Flood warning has also been issued for Lubbock until 7:30 p.m.
