Recent rainfall in March 2016 has left Texas and other Southeast Texas areas with flooding and substantial driving difficulty. Silsbee in the greater Beaumont area is normally a town that sees a lot of this rain. Texas as a state is under the national average in average rainfall sitting at just under 36 inches per year. The national average hovers at approximately 40 inches per year. Annually, Silsbee has averaged over 61 inches the last 30 years.
Driving conditions from high waters and standing water can provide drivers with some obstacles if they do not show caution. Most flood deaths occur while people are in their vehicles. Drivers that come across flooded roads should turn around instead of attempting to pass through high water, especially with uncertain depths.
Silsbee drivers are definitely experienced with wet road conditions, be sure to stick to caution and avoid unnecessary risks. The rain will continue to fall in Silsbee, but as long as drivers continue to stick with preventative driving in the worst conditions the roads will still provide some of the best sights to see in Texas.
