What you should do:
Hurricane Season does not end until November 30th. While Tropical Storm Epsilon will not impact Texas, you should still take 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.
  • 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.
  • As we move into to peak hurricane season, homeowners and renters should contact their insurance agent about purchasing flood insurance. Remember, flood damage is not covered by most homeowners or renters policies. Take action now to ensure that your home and contents are protected by enrolling in the National Flood Insurance Program.
