Northbound traffic on Interstate 45 is wall to wall between Houston and Dallas.

Southbound lanes are still carrying some traffic towards Houston which surprises me a bit.

Officials in Houston asked inland residents to sit tight so those people who live right on the coast and in low lying areas could evacuate without getting stuck in a traffic jam again.

Need to stop for gas soon...we've heard stations closer to the coast are running low.

We'll have a live report on News9 at 10pm with a little luck.
