A mandatory evacuation has been ordered in Laredo for dozens of families who can't return to their homes. More than 100 people spent the night in a shelter in Laredo as the Rio Grande river began rising flooding low lying neighborhoods. Strong currents were flowing just below one of the international port of entries and rising up to 30 feet above flood stage.
