SEVERE WEATHER: It pains me to say this. After driving through Beaumont and tracking road conditions all night/morning, we’ve simply run out of ways to get around. Nearly every exit is impassable now many people have parked on the Interstate/Highway. #12newsnow pic.twitter.com/o2iOJRWn8u — H. Tyler Seggerman (@TylerSeggerman) September 19, 2019
