Hurricane Season in Southeast Texas
In our area, we are all constantly keeping our eye on the Gulf. We realize that at any time a tropical depression or storm system can quickly develop. This week we are keeping an eye on Tropical Depression Eight to see if it develops into a hurricane and what this can mean for Southeast Texas.
According to the National Hurricane Center, a tropical depression has wind speed less than 39 MPH. The NHC has issued some key messages regarding this depression. It is expected to strengthen and could bring tropical-storm-force winds to portions of the Texas coast. It is also expected to produce heavy rains across portions of Louisiana and Southern Texas. These rains could result in flash flooding.
Remember in the event of flooding while driving, its always best to turn around and not drown.
Stay safe Southeast Texas!
