With Tropical Storm Harvey expected to continue dumping unprecedented amounts of rain over southeast Texas through the rest of the week, transportation officials in the state are discouraging travel in the region due to historic flooding on highways and roads.

The Texas Department of Transportation is reporting nearly 350 road locations currently affected by high water in the Houston area alone, a full list of which can be seen here. Affected roads include I-10, I-45, I-610, I-69 and numerous U.S. and state highways.
