Flood Threat for Montgomery County
Status Update from the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management
MONTGOMERY COUNTY- Multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected today through Thursday for the Montgomery County area. The risk for locally heavy rainfall continues for all of Southeast Texas over the next several days, as multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms develop and move across the area. Some spots have already received very heavy rainfall over the past couple of days that have led to some flooding, and these areas are most vulnerable to any additional heavy rainfall. Moderate to major river flooding is expected in and near the heaviest rainfall. At this time, the Wednesday-Thursday time period is still expected to feature a widespread threat of flooding rains for much of Southeast Texas.
Out of an abundance of caution the COVID-19 Call Center and Mass Vaccination Site at Woodforest Bank Stadium will be closed tomorrow due to the weather. We hope to continue with normal operations of the site and call center on Thursday weather permitting. Montgomery County agencies and resources are on alert and ready to activate as needed for our area. The Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management will continue to monitor these storms, and will send updates as we receive them.
