Law enforcement preps for more rain, urge driver caution

ODESSA, TX (KWES) - When it rains, it floods. Tuesday's rainfall left parts of Odessa flooded, with more on the way.

"Use extra caution when you come across an intersection or a location where there appears to be a lot of water," said Corporal Steve LeSueur, Odessa Police Department.

Odessa Police saw areas like Tom Green Avenue flooded. Once the call comes in for a high-water rescue, it's all hands-on deck.

"We usually respond to them. They'll dispatch us along with Odessa Fire & Rescue," said LeSueur.

As the rain falls, police say it's easy to keep yourself safe. Just turn around.

"We see it happen way to often where we'll respond to a high-water rescue and that person will tell us we never thought that it would happen to us because we didn't think that there was that much water," said LeSueur.
