Much of Beaumont, Texas, is an island, with major roads cut off by floodwaters.
John Livious is standing in front of a hotel, looking out as rescue trucks navigate the flooded road in. Conditions here are getting worse.
"Winds picking up. Rain getting heavier. Water rising. Very bad sight," he says. "Wouldn't wish this on anyone."
Livious came here to escape rising water in Houston early Sunday. Evacuating was an easy call, he says.
