Heavy rains pose problems for transporation in Del Valle

Heavy rains in Del Valle flooded several roads making it difficult for school buses to get children back home.

Maha Creek in Del Valle flooded several roads including Plover Place.

The area saw about an inch and a half of rain, enough to turn many Del Valle homeowners yards into ponds.

Del Valle ISD decided the best thing for them to do was cancel buses for high school, middle school and elementary school students who live in the flooded area.

"I'm trying to pick up my daughter so I can get going and then sit in this traffic for another half hour," said Joe Harros who was picking up his girlfriend's daughter at the crowded Del Valle Middle School Wednesday.

With more rain possible this week there is fear that the flooding will only get worse, but for now people in Del Valle are doing what they can to dry out.
