31 The Nueces River and Turkey Creek are a mile and a half wide south and west of Crystal City. Farm to Market 190 is flooded over a mile near the Nueces River and the bridge floor is flooded. Livestock should be moved from the flood plain. Upstream, Highway 85 becomes impassable as routed water spills into Soldier Slough and over the highway.
