What is the flood situation looking like in Corpus? We are supposed to be driving down Monday for vacation, but I've been seeing everything about Texas flooding online and that y'all are supposed to get another 3-5" in the next 48 hours.

Driving down from where?? (oh...Topeka)

On what Roads?

I'll let the Corpus folks answer, but I doubt that high water on rivers 100-200 miles North & Northeast of Corpus would affect Corpus at all.

& I haven't heard of any issues on I 35 anywhere in Texas.

Looks like a couple of frontage roads are affected (one in Laredo & in Hillsboro). But it looks like I 35 from Oklahoma to San Antonio....the Freeway is open, as is I 37 from SA to Corpus.

Here's a TEX DOT site that I would look at (especially if you are traveling on smaller roads in Texas)

Nothing flooded right now. 3-5 inches in 48 hours is not a flooding event here. Flooding tends to only get bad with over 10 inches in less than 24 hours(or 5 inches in an hour will shut things down for an hour or two). Even then it's not really in vacation areas but the far Southside and parts of Flour Bluff that drain into Oso Creek and Oso Bay. They flood because of slowness of draining into the larger bays. Tourist areas on the water don't flood unless accompanied by a large hurricane with storm surge. On the coast there are lots of places for the water to go unlike inland rivers. The reservoirs on the Nueces River allow control of river flooding to keep the bridges clear.

We're not having any flooding at the moment. It's beautiful and sunny right now and all the water is where it's supposed to be. Not sure what the next few days will bring.
