Calhoun County Closes School Due to Heavy Rains
Summerschool canceled for the afternoon and tomorrow for Calhoun ISD.
School isn't out for everyone in the community quite yet, as some students attend summer school classes throughout the Crossroads.
Flash flood in effect for the area.
The National Weather Center issued a Flood Warning effective at 9:45 this morning for the Guadalupe River near Bloomington, affecting Refugio, Calhoun, and Victoria Counties.
With the flash flood warnings earlier this week and flash floods issued this morning, some school programs, like at the Calhoun County Independent School Districts, have allotted to cancel school at noon today through Thursday.
There is no word yet on if the school sessions for the week will be presented online at this time.
It seems that rain will continue through the weekend as well and you can likely expect to see more closures throughout the Crossroads as flooding occurs.
We will continue to keep you posted as always on the weather and closures as these expected showers and thunderstorms persist.

Be safe Crossroads.
Although we're betting the kids don't mind the unexpected break, we know it may be inconvenient for working parents. But safety first when it comes to the family right? Don't forget the life-saving slogan, " Turn Around, Don't Drown." According to The Texas Flood-Texas Water Development Board, it's estimated that roughly 60 percent of flood deaths in Texas occur in vehicles, many at crossing high water areas.
