Tips to stay safe in severe weather

In response to the severe weather that has occurred, Governor Abbott has added 24 counties to Disaster Declaration. The following safety tips are from a press release issued by the Governor’s office. The Governor is encouraging Texans to follow these safety tips during this weather event:

  • When severe storms threaten, the safest place to be is indoors.
  • Avoid areas already flooded and avoid any fast-flowing water.
  • Be extremely cautious of any water on roads or in creeks, streams, storm drains or other areas – never attempt to cross flowing streams or drive across flooded roadways and observe road barricades placed for your protection.
  • Remember that dangerous waters can seem deceptively calm, and if you encounter flooding, move to higher ground.
  • Monitor weather radios and news broadcasts for updated information on current and anticipated severe weather in your area.
  • Keep in mind that flood dangers are even harder to recognize at night.
  • Be mindful that rising and moving water can also threaten people on foot and individuals near recreational waterways impacted by significant rainfall.
  • Monitor weather radios and news broadcasts for updated information on current and anticipated severe weather in your area.
