Houston says bridges, roads starting to fail under stress of flooding

HOUSTON, Aug 29 (Reuters) – Some roads and bridges in Houston are starting to buckle under the impact of catastrophic flooding in parts of the city from Tropical Storm Harvey, a local official said on Tuesday.

Jeff Linder of the Harris County Flood Control District said one bridge had collapsed and that some roads had been damaged by the torrential rains.

Water levels at two reservoirs to the west of the city continue to rise, where more than 3,000 homes have been flooded, Linder added.
