Tropical Storm Barry – 1 PM Update 7/11/19

Based on this morning’s forecasts, the heaviest impacts are still shown to be east of the Greater Houston/Fort Bend County area with the potential for 10-20 inches over the next 7 days along the Louisiana Coast with Fort Bend County possibly receiving 1 to 3 inches. Final rainfall amounts are dependent upon the ultimate path of this system so these estimates are subject to change.

The pump station, including the new pump are operational. The Board, Engineer and Operator are continuing to monitor the current forecasts and LID Solutions is on standby in the event they need to mobilize.

We encourage residents to continue to monitor forecasts for the area, check and stock hurricane kits and have plans ready to be enacted this week, and follow trusted weather sources for information, recommendations and changes to the forecast.  (National Hurricane CenterHouston/Galveston National Weather ServiceWest Gulf River Forecast Center and Fort Bend County Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management).
