Rain floods Hwy 78 in east Alabama

TALLADEGA, AL (WBRC) - Heavy rains forced road officials to close parts of U.S. Highway 78 in Talladega County for a few hours on Monday.

State troopers told FOX6 News Monday morning the Talladega County Department of Transportation closed Highway 78 from mile marker 148 east to the Calhoun County line because of water on the roadway.

The road was reopened a few hours later, but motorists were urged to drive with caution on the wet roads.
