Considering the proximity of Beaumont to the LA border, and the fact that IH-10 is the southern route for truck traffic and vacationers, I'll bet you a dollar to a donut that there were numerous casualties from non-Texas residents.
Yesterday morning, because of the lay of the land, visibility from my front porch was about a half mile looking east and less than 100 yards looking west. I could make out the top of the trees at 75 yards.
Patchy fog in this area is like hitting a wall, it's just that fast and people just don't get it.
If it's a ground fog a truck driver in his cab may be above the heavy fog line. His visibility will be completely different than a driver in a small car.
Even the best driver isn't prepared for it.
With the number of trucks involved most probably were from out of state.
Doesn't stop the snarky comments though does it.
