Sign up for emergency alerts in your neighborhood

Severe weather conditions have been active this spring in much of Central Texas and with additional storms in this week’s forecast, you need to be emergency prepared and weather-aware by knowing what to do and when. Here are three easy tips to help keep you safe:

  1. Stay on top of severe weather and sign up for emergency alerts in your neighborhood at http://WarnCentralTexas.org.
  2. Most flood fatalities occur in vehicles, so never drive around barricades or through flooded roads – Turn Around Don't Drown!
  3. Get weather ready! Learn flood safety tips like how to plan before, during and after a flood at http://weather.gov/safety/flood.
Remember to be aware and monitor ATXFloods for real-time road closures in addition to your local radio and television outlets for up-to-date information if you must travel during severe weather.
