Tropical Storm Imelda to hit Montgomery County

Status Update from the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management

 

Tropical Depression 11 becomes Tropical Storm Imelda along the Brazoria coast near Freeport.  This system will track slowly north-northwest over the next couple days, moving inland later today.

 

 

 

Tropical Storm Warning is now in effect from Sargent to Port Bolivar in case the system strengthens some today. This will include the following coastal zones: coastal Brazoria county, coastal Galveston county (including Galveston island and Bolivar Peninsula), southeast Harris county.

This creates no real changes to forecast weather or impacts, this system will likely stay at Tropical Depression status for a few hours. Rainfall forecasts for Montgomery County predict between 4 and 6 inches over the next 2 days with isolated amounts of 8-10 possible. 

Our rivers and streams will bear close watching over the next few days as we monitor rainfall totals and exact locations of training of systems.

 

 

The Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management will be holding a press conference at 4:00PM CST on September 17, if you would like more information please contact our PIO Meghan Ballard at 936-523-3904.
