Hurricane Season

June 1st was the official start of the 2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season. National Weather Service's predictions for the 2016 hurricane season are out, but it only takes one storm impacting the Houston area to cause damage to your home or business. The Fort Bend County Office of Emergency Management is prepared, are you? Check out our pages under the "Preparedness" menu above, paying special attention to the Fort Bend County Hurricanes page.

This Hurricane Season brings you many ways to keep informed; Fort Bend County has digital signage on State Highway 6 in Arcola to communicate threats to folks passing-through Fort Bend County while evacuating. We also have FBC Alerts, which allow you to receive alerts of many threats directly from our office.

Make this Hurricane Season the safest one yet, with a disaster supply kit and a family disaster plan.

Flood Recovery

Flood recovery efforts are underway for businesses and residents affected by the severe storms this year.
