NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

An overflow of water from creeks caused serious flooding on some Nacogdoches roadways.

Several county roads throughout the city were closed Thursday due to the flooding. 

Many Nacogdoches residents have to find alternative routes home after dozens of county roads shut down due to flooding. Some East Texans who live in the affected areas had to drive out of the way just to get home.

“I live just about two minutes away from here and it’s very inconvenient,” Michael Neubert, a resident whose car was stuck on County Road 536 said. “I’m supposed to head to Lubbock today and I’m going to have to drive another thirty minutes to get around the river that has appeared in the road.”

Many of the county roads are dirt roads and drivers are advised to proceed with caution.
