(San Antonio, TX) -- Lanes are open again on Interstate 35 near downtown San Antonio, after heavy rain forced them to shut down last night. Officials say the lower levels of I-35 and I-10, close to San Pedro, were closed when many drivers got stuck in the rain. Police cleared the highway of most of the vehicles, then announced lanes had reopened by about 11:30 last night. The rain also caused dozens of power outages around San Antonio.
