What you should do:

We are approaching the peak of Hurricane Season. While Tropical Storm Isaias will not impact Texas, now is the time to make sure you and your family are prepared.


  • Review your family’s emergency plan, including what you will do if you stay or if you evacuate.
    • Remember to take into account that social distancing is still needed for COVID-19.
  • If you live in an evacuation zone (Zip Zone) and will need assistance evacuating for a storm that threatens our region, now is the time to call 2-1-1 or go online to register for assistance.
