AUSTIN (KXAN) — Central Texas grocery stores are opening Wednesday for a limited time. On Tuesday, long lines formed at stores around the Austin area.

Reminder though, TxDOT says road conditions are as bad as we’ve seen after up to a half-inch of ice overnight from freezing rain.


H-E-B will keep its website updated with store hours throughout Texas. It is monitoring conditions and wants to open stores to regular hours as soon as possible.

“Over the next few days, customers also may see limited time slots available for Curbside and Home Delivery orders. We will do our best to fulfill current orders and will contact customers if orders are impacted,” H-E-B said. Its H-E-B & Favor Senior Support phone line is closed Wednesday.
