What the heck is going on near the airport on 2818? It is completely shut down and there are three helicopters stationary overhead with lots of emergency vehicles on the road.

PUBLIC NOTICE! TOMORROW! Residents in the Bryan/College Station area will see an increase of helicopters and/or first responders' traffic Wednesday, June 15.

This is an EXERCISE ONLY that will simulate a large-area flooding event.

What they said above is correct...and the road was shut down due to an accident at Harvey Mitchell and Raymond Stotzer.

There was a pretty significant accident around 430 on Harvey Mitchell between Bush and 60/University Drive. 18 wheeler involved and lotsa smoke and debris everywhere.

hmm.. Lots of local feeds of both accident advisories and emergency prep plans but TEXAgs is the goto?

I guess somethings never change.

I just came here for the places that will have the Ags on Friday.. That will teach me..

KBTX, Easterwood, and Texas Task Force 1 all posted about it on social media yesterday and/or today.

Well now I know why there was a helicopter hovering in our neighborhood most of the afternoon yesterday. We back up to the Brazos.
