Tropical Depression 8 Update

Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 2 (FBCLID 2) continues to monitor Tropical Depression 8 in the Gulf of Mexico.  The FBCLID 2 pump stations have been tested and operators are on stand-by to run the pumps, if needed.  Fortunately, the Brazos River and Ditch H are at low levels that do not impact drainage inside the FBCLID 2 levee. The latest forecast and information from the National Weather Service is included below:

“Tropical Depression 8 is making its way across the Gulf of Mexico. We can expect increasing winds and seas across the Upper Texas Coastal waters Thursday, and the threat of heavy rainfall spreads into Southeast Texas Friday into Sunday…”
