BEAUMONT, Texas - Highway officials say flooded Interstate 10 in Southeast Texas will stay closed through the weekend.

The Texas Department of Transportation on Thursday said I-10 near Beaumont remains closed in both directions. Drivers are advised to use alternate routes because I-10 is not expected to reopen until Monday afternoon.

Thousands of Southeast Texas residents have been displaced since heavy rain last week led to flooding, especially along the Sabine River.

Hail the size of golf balls hit the Fort Worth area early Thursday, breaking some vehicle windshields. Several Arlington Police Department patrol cars had windows busted.

Electric provider Oncor says about 17,000 customers lost power in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
