In the last 24 hours, Montgomery County has received between 1.55 and .5 inches of rain across the county. The Flash Flood Watch has been lifted as the heavier precipitation is expected to move out of our area this evening.
Tropical Storm Gordon officially formed today and will be tracking across the Gulf of Mexico over the next couple of days. Currently the path is forecast to impact the Louisiana/Mississippi coast.
The Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management will continue to monitor this Gordon over the next few days for any variation in track. This is an excellent reminder that we are in the peak of Hurricane season. Now is the time to prepare and finalize all hurricane preparedness kits and plans. Continue to closely monitor the weather forecast as we move through the next few days. Things can change quickly.
