Citizens urged to take precaution when driving in the rain

LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) -- Nearly 36 million people are expected to hit the road this Memorial Day weekend, and with rain in our forecast in Webb County, drivers are urged to take extra precaution.

With the heavy rain we had this morning, multiple accidents were reported across Laredo.

The Laredo Fire Department is urging everyone to be extra vigilant when traveling this holiday weekend.

Make sure to avoid all distractions, pay extra attention to the road, and keep your distance from the car in front of you.

AAA is predicting a near record number of Americans to travel during the holiday weekend.

They say this could be the busiest Memorial Day weekend since 2005.
