The Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) will be rostering Texas A&M Forest Service Saw Crews, Texas Parks and Wildlife Water Rescue Boats, Texas A&M Engineering and Extension Service Urban Search and Rescue and Swift Water Rescue Boat Squads, and a Texas Department of State Health Services Ambulance Strike Team. The Texas State Operations Center remains activated at Level II in support of the ongoing response to COVID-19.
"As severe weather approaches, the Lone Star State is taking necessary precautions to ensure the safety of Texans," said Governor Abbott. "I urge all Texans to heed the guidance of local officials and pay attention to weather alerts to keep themselves and their loved ones informed and safe."
Texans are encouraged to follow these safety tips:
- When severe storms threaten, the safest place to be is indoors. Avoid areas already flooded and avoid any fast-flowing water. Be extremely cautious of any water on roads or in creeks, streams, storm drains, or other areas – never attempt to cross flowing streams or drive across flooded roadways and always observe road barricades placed for your protection. Remember, Turn Around Don't Drown. Dangerous waters can seem deceptively calm, and if you encounter flooding, move to higher ground. Keep in mind that flood dangers are even harder to recognize at night. Stay informed by monitoring weather radios and news broadcasts for updated information on current and anticipated severe weather in your area.
