Latest Info from the National Hurricane Center (as of 6 a.m. on Sept. 22) Tropical Storm Beta is to stall today and then slowly move east northeast tonight. Unfortunately, this will bring additional rainfall across portions of South East Texas throughout the day. Significant flash and urban flooding is occurring and will continue for the middle and upper Texas Coastin Tuesday. Storm surge flooding will continue throughout the morning, around the times of high tide along portions of the Texas Coast.
City Public Works crews have been working throughout the storm to clear ditches and drains. Traffic crews are redirecting traffic and closing roads as needed. As a precaution, pumps have been set up in neighborhoods across the City. Residents who live in low-lying areas should take the necessary precautions to remain safe and dry. This includes staying off the roads and being aware of standing water before making their commute.
