(Update 7:10 p.m.) U.S. 181 in the Falls City, Hobson area is now open.

Previously posted today:
Heavy rain and thunderstorms are wreaking havoc on area roadways. Karnes County Sheriff Dwayne Villanueva reported at 3:50 p.m. April 17 that U.S. 181 is shut down in the Falls City area, due to multiple crashes.

As of that time, the sheriff said there were a total of four crash scenes north and south of the city, including one involving a tractor-trailer that hydroplaned near C.R. 211 and is blocking both the northbound and southbound lanes of U.S. 181.
