A disturbance in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico has been upgraded to Tropical Storm Cristobal, and we anticipate effects in the Gulf in the coming days.
The City of Galveston is closely monitoring this tropical storm. The greatest threats to Galveston at this time appear to be heavy rain expected late this weekend and early next week.
We encourage residents to prepare a storm-ready kit with a food supply to avoid needing to leave the house in the event of heavy rain. We will continue to provide updates on this system.
