Major highway still underwater

Heavy flooding from last week's storms is keeping U.S.70 closed just south of Perryton, but crews are making progress.

The Texas Department of Transportation dug a large trench Tuesday afternoon to help the soggy stretch of road drain.

No word on just how long that process may take. The area received another half inch of rain Tuesday night.

 Areas on the South side of Wolf Creek Park also remained closed. Swimming and boating in the park's Lake Fryer is still prohibited.
