Tropical Storm Nicholas Safety and Preparation Reminders

Written by on September 13, 2021

HOUSTON –  The City of Houston is continuing to prepare for the overnight arrival of Tropical Storm Nicholas. 

This is expected to be primarily a rain event, with the potential for severe flooding on our roadways.

With the worst of the weather moving in overnight, motorists are asked to be off  the roads by nightfall.

Houston Public Works has already positioned 43 barricades in flood-prone areas, with more staged around the city – ready to be deployed where needed.  Additionally, the Houston Police and Fire Departments have strategically placed high water rescue vehicles and boats around the city.

Mayor Turner reminds all motorists to avoid high water – turn around, don’t drown.  Likewise, if you an encounter a barricade, DO NOT attempt to drive around it.  It has been placed there for your safety.

Also, take this opportunity to make sure your medication is properly labeled and included in your emergency kit.  Charge your durable medical equipment and spare batteries and make ensure they are operational.  Finally, for your pets and service animals, prepare at least three days’ worth of food and water and have all appropriate veterinarian information available.
