Hours of heavy rains are prompting the Texas Department of Public Safety to remind motorists to avoid low water crossings and driving on flooded roadways. 

When there’s water running across a road, drivers should always turn around and choose a different route.  Six inches of water can cause tires to lose traction and begin to slide.

A number of flood advisories were issued for the region Wednesday morning by the National Weather Service Office in Forth Worth.
