Dallas restaurants close after Tropical Storm Harvey

DALLAS—The restaurants of Dallas-Fort Worth’s downtown area shut down for the third time this week amid Hurricane Harvey.

Restaurants across the city were placed on lockdown Wednesday morning, with the exception of Daley’s, which opened at 6 a.m. local time, as the storm’s eye began moving inland.

Daley the Chicken, a popular Dallas eatery, said it was closed until Friday.

Dade County has declared a state of emergency for all county and local governments and is planning to open up emergency shelters in areas of low-lying buildings.

The National Weather Service warned that Harvey could bring flooding, tornadoes and mudslides to the Dallas area.

DFW police are still investigating the death of a 23-year-old man who was killed by a vehicle as the city of Dallas was under evacuation orders.
