The City of Galveston is monitoring Tropical Storm Nicholas in the Gulf of Mexico, predicted to bring heavy rainfall and tides of four feet above normal.
The National Weather Service is forecasting heavy rainfall caused by TS Nicholas beginning Monday. We also anticipate higher than normal tides, which could cause coastal flooding.
We recommend residents ensure all items that could float or blow into the drainage system and prepare for possible street flooding. We will continue to monitor this system and provide an update later this afternoon.
