TRASH SERVICE IS STILL OPERATING TODAY. BUT NO RECYCLING.
A decision will be made later today regarding Tuesday service. Please bring your trash cans and bins inside once trash is picked up as they can block storm water drains.
CITY FACILITIES ARE CURRENTLY OPEN.
MONDAY 9-13 8AM UPDATE
The storm has repositioned further north overnight so it will make landfall sooner than expected. The storm's 60 mph winds could also strengthen. The main threats are very intense rainfall and storm surge flooding from Matagorda Bay east to High Island. Rainfall rates could be as high as 3 to 4 inches per hour.
Our area could see anywhere from 8 to 12 inches over the next several days. We should all plan for the possibility of street flooding. City crews have been working hard to clear storm drains throughout the city. PLEASE HELP US KEEP DRAINS CLEAR to ensure our drainage system works as designed. It’s also important to secure loose items around your homes that could end up blocking our storm drains, and avoid parking on streets that flood
