League City’s Emergency Management Office, in collaboration with the Houston-Galveston branch of the National Weather Service, is monitoring Tropical Storm Hanna. The latest models as of Friday morning have the storm tracking further south and making landfall near Corpus Christi on Saturday. Major impact to our area is not expected, but moisture from the storm moving inland will fuel showers and thunderstorms through Sunday. Heavy periods of rain, as well as localized street flooding, are possible.
How much rain our area will see from this disturbance is still uncertain, but now is the time for all League City residents to make sure they are ready and prepared for flooding and inclement weather this hurricane season. If you haven’t already, put together your hurricane kit, or if you already have one, make sure to add COVID related items including masks, hand sanitizer, and sanitizing wipes. For a complete listing of everything you need in your kit visit https://www.ready.gov/kit.
It’s also time to prepare a family emergency plan and decide on a meeting place if you get separated. Your family may not be together during or after a hurricane or flooding, so you need to know how you’ll contact one another and reconnect if separated.
