NEW ORLEANS – Interstate 10 near the Texas state line has closed in both directions due to flooding.

The closure begins four miles from the Louisiana-Texas border.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development suggests taking I-49 North to I-20 West to avoid the flooding.

Tropical Storm Harvey made a second landfall near the border overnight with 30 to 40 mph winds and a two to four foot storm surge and is expected to continue across Louisiana.
