Hurricane Laura Evening Update – August 26th

Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 2 (FBCLID 2) is actively monitoring Hurricane Laura 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. FBCLID 2 is included in the Tropical Storm Warning with a 30-40% probability of Tropical Storm Force winds (39+ MPH).
