Quick-striking storms cause traffic turmoil

- A quick-moving storm system prompted warnings for tornadoes and flash floods in southeast Texas early on Wednesday morning.

The weather conditions caused METRO to suspend or limit service for the METRORail Green Line, Red Line and Purple Line. METRO later restored service to those lines, but all METRO high occupancy vehicle lanes were closed on Wednesday morning.

Flood warnings are in effect for Keegans Bayou at Roark Road and Brays Bayou at Rice Avenue.
