Tropical Storm Harvey is forecast to continue moving slowly southeast through tonight. On Tuesday Harvey will turn northeast and make a second landfall around 9 a.m. between Galveston and the TX/LA state line. Some minor intensification in wind speed is forecast. Our area may see 20 to 30 mph winds on Tuesday and early Wednesday with gusts to 40 mph. Occasional periods of moderate to heavy rain are still likely through Wednesday afternoon. The bull's eye for heaviest rainfall may be shifting a bit inland from our area. It is possible we'll get 3 to 5 inches of additional rain today and 5 to 7 inches tomorrow.
If you need to leave your home for any reason, please check the road conditions. You can check major road conditions at http://drivetexas.org. Driving through a flooded area can be extremely hazardous, and almost half of all flash flood deaths happen in vehicles. When in your vehicle, look out for flooding in low-lying areas, at bridges, and at highway dips. As little as six inches of water may cause you to lose control of your vehicle.
Shelters are open across the affected and surrounding areas:
