Hurricane Season is Underway, It's Time to Get Prepared

The Atlantic hurricane season is officially underway and runs from June 1 to November 30. The most active months for Texas are August and September, but hurricanes and tropical storms have impacted the Texas coast in every month of hurricane season. This means residents need to plan and prepare now.

League City’s biggest risk during hurricane season is flooding. This area is susceptible to riverine and coastal flooding, as well as flooding from low lying areas. These conditions have caused widespread flooding in the past, as we experienced with Hurricane Harvey. 

Here are some important tips on how to plan ahead of the storm:

  • Practice your plan.

Check Your Insurance Coverage

  • Hurricanes bring heavy rains that may cause flooding. Purchase flood insurance early in the season. Remember, there is usually a 30-day waiting period before a flood insurance policy takes effect.
