(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.

Additional information about weather-related closures can be posted below in the comments section.

According to the Karnes County Sheriff's Office, U.S. 181 in Hobson is shut down due to the fire at the shale yard. The highway will be closed "until further notice." Motorists are advised to find an alternate route.
