As tropical storm Nicholas continues to form in the
Gulf of Mexico, we continue to closely monitor the size, intensity, and
movement of the storm. We expect the storm to make landfall along the middle
Texas coast later this afternoon or early this evening.
Village officials from all of the village cities,
along with the Village Fire Department and the MVPD have been making
preparations over the past 72 hours. Our personnel are in place and our
equipment staged and ready for deployment should we need to react.
At this time the primary threat remains to be heavy
rainfall, localized street flooding and possible power-outages. We should
expect to possibly see 6-10 inches of rain in the Memorial area.
We are encouraging residents to be off area roads
prior to the afternoon rush hour as rains will be increasing throughout the
afternoon and evening hours. [More]
