ABILENE, Texas -

As storms rolled in on Thursday afternoon, the city of Abilene closed the Mockingbird overpass at North 1st Street in downtown.

A city spokesperson says the pump that is used to remove rain water during storms isn't operating.

As a precaution, the city closed the roadway that goes underneath the bridge.
