Tropical Storm Arlene Forms in the Gulf


Tropical Storm Arlene, the first named storm of 2023, has formed in the eastern Gulf of Mexico and poses no threat to Texas.

The Harris County Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management (HCOHSEM) continues to monitor the course of Arlene. We will provide notices and guidance on all named storms through the end of hurricane season on November 30.

Tropical storms can form quickly and with little warning. Now is the time to check your emergency kits and review your emergency plans. Stay informed by following HCOHSEM updates on www.ReadyHarris.org, on social media, and by signing up for Ready Harris Alerts or Ready Harris Accessible Alerts.

For more information on how to prepare, review our hurricane preparedness and evacuation guide. You can also text GULF2023 to 888777 to receive hurricane season updates.
