Fort Bend County Office of Emergency Management

Stay safe and heed warnings from our officials.

Update from Fort Bend County Judge this morning on continuing cold-weather conditions in Fort Bend County.

The Fort Bend County Office of Emergency Management participated on conference calls with state officials and the National Weather Service yesterday and activated the County Emergency Operations Center this morning at 5:00 AM.

A strong cold front will continue to move into Fort Bend County today, and stay in the area overnight, bringing rain and very cold temperatures.

These cold temperatures can cause the wet roads to freeze over, leading to treacherous driving conditions.
Temperatures may stay below freezing until noon Wednesday.

Fort Bend County Road and Bridge Crews are monitoring road conditions and are treating them for ice as needed.

All Fort Bend County non-essential employees have been told to remain home and stay off roadways. All employees should check with their department heads to determine their status as essential or non-essential.
County officials and EOC staff will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated as conditions change. Check back on http://www.fbcoem.org and the Fort Bend County Office of Emergency Management Facebook and Twitter pages for more information.

Commuter Transit services are closed and Demand Response services will be offered for Medical trips only.
County offices and courts are both closed, and jury selection has been postponed. Potential jurors should call the phone number on their jury summons or email mailto:[email protected] to reschedule their jury service.

Brazos ISD, Fort Bend ISD, Katy ISD, Lamar CISD, Needville ISD are all closed today as are the University of Houston Sugar Land campus, and Wharton County Junior College.

The county asks essential employees to report to work, if possible. All employees should check with their department heads if they are unsure of their status. Residents should stay home and stay off the roadways if possible.

Be safe and remember to protect the “4 P’s:” People, Pets, Pipes, and Plants. If you must go outside, wear warm clothing especially on your hands, feet, and face. Bring pets indoors, wrap pipes, and cover sensitive plants to prevent damage from freezing temperatures.

Keep informed by tuning in to local media and check back at http://www.fbcoem.org and the County’s Facebook and Twitter pages for more information.

While we anticipate the cooler weather coming in, we know it won't be like the January 1940 winter storm which covered the Ft Bend County Museum's Moore home! Some may remember this! While snow may not be coming to Richmond this year, the drop in the humidity is appreciated! Safely enjoy the coming of 2017 with the rain the forecast has for us....
