City monitoring weather, preparing for heavy rainfall

weather watch

The City of Galveston is monitoring heavy rainfall expected later this week. Meteorologists are predicting rain beginning later today or Thursday through Saturday night. This rain is likely to coincide with higher tides, which could exacerbate street flooding.

 City crews are following our pre-storm and debris management plan and clearing debris from culverts and inlets. We're also placing barricades downtown should we need them in the event of street flooding. In that case, remember to avoid driving in standing water and creating a wake that could damage property. Turn around and don't drown!

 Prepare ahead of time by running any errands you need to complete and preparing your home or business for heavy rain this week.  

 Consider this early preparation for hurricane season! (More info at
