๐’๐ญ๐š๐ฒ ๐‡๐ฒ๐๐ซ๐š๐ญ๐ž๐ ๐Ÿ’ง: Even with temperatures between 58ยฐF and 48ยฐF and a wind chill between 58ยฐF and 43ยฐF, it's essential to stay hydrated. Carry a reusable water bottle with you.

๐–๐ž๐š๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ซ ๐”๐ฉ๐๐š๐ญ๐ž โ˜๏ธ๐ŸŒฌ๏ธ: Tonight's forecast predicts temperatures between 58ยฐF and 48ยฐF with a wind of 9-14 mph, occasionally gusting between 13-18 mph. While skies remain clear, it may be a bit breezy.

๐๐ž๐ญ ๐’๐š๐Ÿ๐ž๐ญ๐ฒ ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŽƒ: Keep your furry friends indoors during Halloween, as costumes and loud noises can be stressful for them.

๐ŸšจNationwide Test of Emergency Alert System on Oct. 4๐Ÿšจ

Hello community members! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Please be informed that FEMA will be conducting a Nationwide Test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) on Wednesday, October 4th, 2023, starting at approximately 1:20 pm. ๐Ÿ“ข๐Ÿ“ฑ

๐Ÿ” Why is this happening?
Testing these alert systems is crucial to ensuring they work properly when we need them most. This ensures that in real emergencies, citizens know what to do, helping to safeguard our communities during critical moments.

๐Ÿ“ฑ What to expect during the test:

-The WEA test sends a code to cell phones and will last for approximately 30 minutes.
-If your phone is switched on, within range of an active cell tower, and your wireless provider participates in WEA, your phone should receive the test message, accompanied by a unique tone and vibration.
-The EAS test, involving radio and TV broadcasters as well as satellite and cable systems, will last about one minute.

๐Ÿ‘ฅ Who will be affected?
All major U.S. wireless providers are participating, so if your mobile phone is on and within range of an active cell tower, you should receive the test.

๐Ÿšซ NO NEED TO BE ALARMED! ๐Ÿšซ
This is only a TEST to ensure these crucial emergency systems are functioning correctly and efficiently. No action is required on your part.

Fire weather conditions are of paramount concern today. The convergence of high temperatures nearing 100ยฐF, extremely low humidity (possibly as low as 20%), and gusty winds reaching up to 20 mph creates a highly dangerous environment, ripe for the potential of rapid and explosive fire growth.

๐Ÿ”ด Key Points to Note ๐Ÿ”ด

๐Ÿ”ฅ High temperatures around 100ยฐF demand heightened caution.
๐Ÿ’ง Critically low humidity, below 30% (possibly as low as 20%).๐Ÿ’จ Gusty winds up to 20 mph amplify the fire risk.
๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ”ฅ Dry vegetation from prolonged drought increases fire susceptibility.
โ˜” Recent rainfall benefits are diminishing quickly.
๐Ÿš’ Potential for swift fire expansion and emergence.
๐ŸŒฌ๏ธ Sustained northeast winds up to 10 mph, gusting to 20 mph.
โš ๏ธ Maintain distance: Equipment with sparks (chainsaws, lawn mowers) must be kept away from vegetation.
โš™๏ธ Secure chains tightly to prevent sparks.

๐Ÿ”ฅ Red Flag Warning Alert ๐Ÿ”ฅ

A Red Flag Warning will be in effect from 10:00am to 9:00pm on Monday due to potentially dangerous fire conditions. As a tropical system nears from the Gulf of Mexico:

๐Ÿ’ง Humidity will drop below 30% in many areas, especially away from the coast.

During this scorching weather, it's crucial to keep heat safety at the forefront of your mind. Here are some essential tips to protect yourself and your loved ones:

1๏ธโƒฃ Know the signs of heat-related illnesses and be vigilant if you or others are experiencing symptoms.

2๏ธโƒฃ Check on your family, friends, and neighbors, especially those who may be more vulnerable to heat.

3๏ธโƒฃ Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day.

4๏ธโƒฃ Take frequent breaks from the heat and avoid strenuous outdoor activities during the hottest part of the day.

5๏ธโƒฃ Wear light clothing and sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun's rays.

6๏ธโƒฃ ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS look before you lock your vehicle to prevent accidental heat-related incidents.

๐Ÿพ Don't forget about your furry friends! Protect your pets from the heat as well. If the ground is too hot for the palm of your hand, it's too hot for their paws.

Let's look out for one another and prioritize safety during this intense heatwave. Stay cool and hydrated!

Though heavy rain has diminished, lessening the threat of flash flooding, continued light to moderate rain will keep some of the floodwaters from receding.
Our Public Works crews are busy responding to the Cityโ€™s drainage infrastructure due to the rain event we are experiencing today. Rain is expected for the next few days and the City needs your help too!

- Leaves, litter or other debris can easily clog storm drains which can lead to localized flooding. If you see that debris is blocking a storm drain - use a dustpan, shovel or a trash can lid to remove debris from the top of the drain. Gloves are recommended. Safely place all debris into a plastic garbage bag and discard.

- Do not place any loose garbage bags, bags of lawn clippings, branches or limbs near the sidewalk or curb that could float away if water gets above curb level.

- Try not to park in the street, but if you need to, please try not to park in front of any curbs inlets.

Please call Public Works at 281-391-4820 or email us at [email protected] for any drainage concerns.
Another round of heavy rainfall is heading for the Katy area. Looks like a break in the action behind this next round.
