The City of Waco says due to the heavy early morning rains numerous traffic signals and intersections were impacted by storm water and power outages.

Many intersections lost power which caused the signals to go into default all flash red.

Motorists are asked to be patient and respect the stop signal and be courteous with other drivers.

The traffic department will place temporary stop signs at intersections that lose power completely until ONCOR can restore power to the signal.

The following locations are red flashing:

  • 18th and Dutton
  • 36th and Waco Dr.

After heavy downpours isolated flooding has occurred at several intersections around the city, but appear to be draining quickly once the rains let up. Drivers are encouraged to drive slowly and move to other lanes to avoid the higher waters.

Listed below are the intersections that will be closed until the rain stops:

  • University Parks from Ross to 2nd
  • 11th and Dutton

No other significant damage has been reported across the city.
