Orange County Officials continue to monitor Harvey as it continues toward central Texas. Rain bands are bringing rain intermittently to our area and is expected to continue over the next few days.
Residents are encouraged to SHELTER IN PLACE and avoid driving on the roadways due to water over the roads in some areas of the county.
If you must travel, please take the following precautions:
Pay attention to barricades.
Never attempt to drive through flooded roadways and avoid underpasses.
Be aware of hydroplaning.
If you drive through neighborhoods, WATCH YOUR SPEED. High speeds cause water to be pushed into homes, endangering property and/or lives.
TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN!
