About 2.25 inches of rain fell in San Antonio overnight and heavy rain is falling along the Interstate 35 corridor, according to the National Weather Service.

Interstate 37 is down to one lane just north of downtown due to a crash and water was reported over the road on the northbound I-35 exit to westbound Loop 410 and on Interstate 10 at Culebra Road, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.

Flooding has been also been reported across the city and county. The road closures are all over the city.

Storms are expected to continue throughout the day.
