SERVICE UPDATE - STREET DEBRIS: The City of Katy Public Works Department is working hard to clean debris from the streets of Katy due to the recent storm. We understand there are leaves and debris collecting in the streets but ask for your patience while our single Street Sweeper works to sweep all areas of the City. To expedite this process, we do ask that you refrain from parking vehicles in the street. Please use your garage, driveway, or ask your neighbors if you can you use their driveway. This allows the street sweeper to make a swift clean pass so we can get to all subdivisions without delay. We also want to remind our residents to not throw, rake, or blow any debris from your yard into the street. Please help us by disposing of yard debris as specified by Texas Pride. We appreciate your assistance and patience while we work to keep Katy beautiful. For questions or concerns, please contact [email protected] or 281-391-4820.

🌀#TropicalStormNicholas is NOT over. If you can, please stay where you are until the storm has passed. As of now Katy’s greatest impacts are :
💨HIGH WINDS - Wind gusts of 45 to 55 mph are still occurring across southern and some eastern parts of the metro area.
⚠️ POWER OUTAGES - If you are using a generator, DO NOT bring it indoors. Carbon monoxide is a silent killer.

For those driving to work today, here are 5 tips from the driving in windy conditions.

1 Watch the weather 👀
Weather service offices may issue high-wind watches, warnings, or advisories when winds will make it difficult to drive. Expect winds to be worse in exposed places, such as straight, open roads, bridges and overpasses.

2 Be aware of high-profile vehicles 🚚
Large trucks, vans, buses, and those towing cargo, are vulnerable to losing control or tipping over in high winds. They can also create turbulence for motorcycles and other small vehicles. Drivers should pay extra attention to the road and anticipate gusts in windy conditions.

3 Keep your distance 🚗- - -🚕
Maintain a safe distance from other vehicles to give yourself and other motorists time and space to avoid any debris in the road. Turn on your headlights to see better through dust, dirt, or snow that the wind kicks up.

4 Keep your hands on the wheel 🤗
Heavy winds make it harder to steer and handle a vehicle, so keep a firm grip on the wheel. If you don’t feel comfortable driving, pull over to a safe place until the wind dies down.

5 Slow down ⏱️
Driving slower than the posted speed limit helps lessen the dangers of wind and helps you better control the vehicle.

Stay safe Katy! #ReadyKaty #KatyStrong #HurricaneNicholas

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Advisory for Katy until 12:15 PM.

You can help keep the City’s drainage infrastructure clear by taking these actions: Please do not park in the street blocking the drainage areas.
Do not place yard debris in drainage areas.
Keep trash debris out of gutters and drains.

Water can back up and cause ponding that slows or stops drainage and can even flood yards and homes.

If you come across high water, don’t attempt to drive through it. Turn Around, Don't Drown. Driving into high standing water could also cause a wake that might push water into homes.
