I can't find a clear route from here to get there. I just passed a TPWD convoy headed north on 45, I assume they are trying to go up, across and down to get around all the flooded roads

My younger cousin lives near mall in port Arthur. Rescue folks everywhere. She is dry and safe but noted it looks like her katrina experience around her.

Not a lot of ways in, if any. Most towns around are flooded too. I'm in Beaumont, and I cannot even get north to Lumberton.

Yes sir, I have talked to multiple friends on paths along S.H. 87, S.H. 287, S.H. 12, S.H. 105, S.H. 96 and I-10 and all are saying he same things, "you can make it to about a line east to west around Evadale" but that is as far as they can confirm you can go headed south.

I appreciate all the feed back, this site and the people on this site never stop amazing me.

I was thinking Buna to Mauriceville to vidor, but I think 12 is shut down.

Overheard someone that lives close to Mauriceville saying they had to go to Orange to get on I10 to get to Beaumont.

I guess we could go south to Galveston, east on 87 to 124, launch into the intercoastal at 124 and make the 30 mile boat run....

Seriously, it appears all routes are blocked.

I just came back from Jasper on 96 and all roads are clear to Carthage. It rained like shell the whole way but no flooding. According to driveways.org 96 was closed on the north end of Kirbyville.

Went through today and back on Hwy 90. A stretch at Nome was slightly hairy. Roughly 3 mile stretch was pretty deep water, but slow and easy did the trick. Hopefully it will be down for anyone headed through in the morning. After you get past Nome, it was fairly open all the way through to Port Arthur.

I'm headed back out at 6:30, headed to Vidor to help some folks there that my wife knows try to get a start on cleanup and tear out. I'm beat...goodnight and God bless everyone of you fellas
