Tropical Storm Nicholas is on track to bring a significant amount of rain to the Houston area starting this evening, Sept. 13 and into Tuesday, Sept. 14. HISD and SBISD announced that all after-school activities and sporting events are cancelled today and schools (in-person and virtual classes) are closed Sept. 14. 

Stay weather-aware - see Space City Weather with Eric Berger for weather pdates - and, if possible, stay off the roads. See HoustonTranstar for traffic conditions including flood warnings

Make sure you have supplies you need. Find Harris County's checklist here

Here are some additional resources to help keep track of what’s happening as the storm rolls in: 

Sign up for Alert Houston. Register for alerts through email, text message, voice call, or mobile app push notifications, and most alerts are geo-targeted. You can also sign up for area-specific alert systems to get the most relevant information to your neighborhood: Bellaire, West U, Memorial Villages

The Harris County Flood Control District offers interactive mapping tools to help you stay informed on weather conditions. The Harris County Flood Warning System allows you to type in your address and see water levels nearby in real time.

Create a service request with City of Houston.

Stay safe and dry.
