CITY PREPARTIONS (updated 9/13 at 5 p.m.)

Highwater vehicles are prepped and ready to go. If a high water rescue is needed, call 911 or LCPD Dispatch at 281-332-2566. If and when streets start flooding, please avoid them, and do not drive through or remove barricades. Believe it or not, roadways and streets are designed to "flood" and convey water away from your homes. It is alarming and concerning, but there is no reason to call 911 for street flooding. Instead you can alert our staff regarding flooding roads and drainage problems at the numbers below.
Report Flooded Roads to City's Traffic and Transportation Department 281-554-1199
Report Drainage Problems to City's Streets and Storm Water Department 281-554-1086
Report Power Outages to Texas New Mexico Power 888-866-7456


Tropical Storm Nicholas continues heading towards our region and could reach a Category 1 hurricane before landfall late Monday evening/early Tuesday morning near Matagorda Bay. If not, it will be a high-end tropical storm. Rainfall will average around 6 to 12 inches across SE Texas, but amounts over 18 inches are possible.  Storm surge ranging from 2 to 5 feet is expected along the coast. Tropical storm force winds will likely arrive in the Galveston Bay area overnight and extend northeast Tuesday morning. 


The primary threats for League City are heavy rainfall, flash flooding, localized street flooding, and possible power outages. The National Weather Service has advised that 15 to 20 inches of rainfall over the next few days is possible. Conditions are expected to deteriorate Monday evening with the heaviest rainfall occurring overnight and Tuesday morning.

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.
