Did it flood around there? Are the roads now clear?

Are you serious about the flooding question..? Brazoria County saw some of its worst flooding in history just over a week ago.. Holiday Lakes was one of the hardest hit areas, with water up to the roof lines of one story buildings. West Columbia, Bar X Ranch, Angleton, Brazoria, and even Lake Jackson had water all over the place. The airport is still inaccessible.
But most roads are finally starting to open back up.

In Brazoria County, the flooding has affected at least 100,000 residents, or roughly one-third of its population, officials said. Floodwaters inundated or cut off hundreds of homes in a slow rise that spread from near Rosharon to Lake Jackson.

Thank you. I should have been more precise. Specifically, the Planters Point area. I needed to know if roads are open yet.

For some reason the road closure page hasn't seemed to be updated since monday, but here is that "update". Looks like around 25 roads were still closed..

Thank you. I'm not familiar with the area at all but I have a relative that's been staying with me due to the floods.
