Freak storm blocks Crosby roadways

Last Friday at about 4:47, a sudden storm released a microburst that struck the power lines across the San Jacinto River Bridge onto the Beaumont Highway snarling traffic for a couple of hours on Old US 90 in both directions and New US 90 eastbound. Every type of law enforcement that services Crosby made the scene along with ambulances as 4 people were stuck near the lines. A cold front with rain brought the storm.
