Beryl Expected to Make Landfall Within 24 Hours


The Harris County Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management (HCOHSEM) continues monitoring Beryl. The National Hurricane Center anticipates Beryl will make landfall as a hurricane near Matagorda Bay early Monday morning.


The National Weather Service currently has Harris County under a Tropical Storm Warning which would bring sustained winds of 39 to 73 mph in the next 36 hours. There is also a Flood Watch in effect for Harris County through Tuesday morning. The National Weather Service forecast rainfall amounts of 5 to 10 inches with localized higher amounts expected beginning late today, July 7th.


Avoid traveling during severe weather!

• Rain can reduce visibility. If you go out, use caution, turn on headlights, and reduce your speed to avoid hydroplaning.

Do not drive through flooded areas. Remember: Turn Around, Don’t Drown

• If you see water covering the road, do not attempt to cross it. Only a few inches of water can float a vehicle.

• Some roads may be impassible due to debris.

Do not drive around barricades.

• If you find yourself in a dangerous situation where your vehicle is taking on water, get out of the vehicle, get to a higher position, and call 911.
