FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT UNTIL 8.30pm
The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Warning for the City of Houston until 8.30pm. This means that conditions will be such that any storms forming in our area during this period may cause flash flooding.
Houston residents should be prepared for Flash Flooding, by:
- Ensuring they stay up-to-date with changing conditions
- Making sure emergency alerts are enabled on their mobile devices
- Setting their NOAA Weather Radios to "Alert" mode
- Begin planning for the impact of flash flooding, which may mean delaying or canceling outdoor activities.
Avoid bayous/streams and creeks. Wait until the threat has passed before getting on the roadway. Remember, it only take a few inches of water to float a vehicle and most flood-related deaths happen on roadways. When you see water on the road, Turn Around, Don't Drown®.
