Tropical Storm Warning for Houston

Houston is under a tropical storm warning. We’re expecting 10”-15” of rain across the Houston area, with higher localized amounts showing 40”+ over the next week. Given our historic propensity for flooding, we will do our best to keep residents informed as to how best they can prepare ahead of time, as well as post articles with resources for people who do need assistance post flood. Watch this space!
