Severe Weather Information
A line of severe storms is expected to come through the region this evening, with severe rainfall and the possibility for flash flooding, damaging wind, hail, and even tornadoes. Rain between 6-8 inches is nothing new for our part of the country, but the rate of rainfall is what could be remarkable here, with significant rainfall happening very suddenly. In addition to a high rate of rain, some areas will see total rainfall closer to 12 inches, which will overwhelm drainage systems and cause localized flooding. With the possibility for tornadoes and high winds, residents and visitors of Fort Bend County are encouraged to closely monitor the situation, and stay tuned to the National Weather Service, this website, and local media.
