MISSOURI CITY (Covering Fort Bend News) – A portion of the Edible Arbor Trail and Mosley Park in Missouri City are closed due to high water. Due to the immense rainfall the region received in the past few days, numerous area rivers, creeks, and bayous including Brazos River and Oyster Creek remain elevated.

In addition, a Flood Warning has been extended until late Sunday, May 12 for the Brazos River at Richmond.  MCTX Emergency Management officials are tracking all weather developments and working with regional partners in monitoring the river levels.

In the meantime, residents are encouraged to stay away from the high waterways, to take precautions if necessary, to monitor local weather reports before traveling around the area and to sign up for emergency alerts on www.MissouriCityReady.com and Twitter—@MissouriCityEM.
