Jackson County closed some roads and recreation areas Sunday in the aftermath of Saturday night's heavy storms and rain.

All three of the county's major trails – Little Blue Trace, Longview and Lake Vista – are closed to the public. All trailheads have been marked to let residents know. Crews, who have been working to repair damage left by the July 27 heavy rains and flooding, will once again assess the damage after these flood waters recede. There is no indication of when areas might reopen.

Some roads in Jackson County were inaccessible due to high water. Road closed signs have been posted at:

• Old Highway 40

• Nebgen Road

• Hardsaw Road

• Gillespie Road

• Old Pink Hill Road

• Duncan/Howell Road

• Seymour Road
