This product covers southeast Texas

Rains from Cindy impacting far southeastern Texas

New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Chambers, Galveston,
      Harris, and Liberty

* storm information:
    - about 70 miles east of Galveston TX
    - 29.2n 93.6w
    - storm intensity 45 mph
    - movement north-northwest or 340 degrees at 7 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Storm Cindy is approaching the Texas and Louisiana
coastline tonight, moving northwest. Some rain and gusty winds
are impacting the area. Rainfall remains the main
threat to the east of a Galveston to Houston to Livingston line. Minor
coastal flooding impacts have been seen on the Bolivar Peninsula and
portions of Galveston Island. Minor wind impacts can be expected
overnight, and may include isolated power outages - primarily along
the immediate coast.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
potential impacts from the flooding rain are still unfolding across
far southeast Texas. Remain well guarded against locally
hazardous flood waters having possible limited
impacts. If realized, these impacts include:
    - rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become
      swollen and overflow in spots.
    - A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow.

Elsewhere across southeast Texas, little to no impact is anticipated.

* Wind:
potential impacts from the main wind event are now unfolding across
coastal southeast Texas. Some locations... including Galveston... have
seen gusts in excess of 40 mph. If realized, wind impacts include:
    - unsecured lightweight objects blown around.
    - Some tree limbs down.
    - Isolated power outages.

Elsewhere across southeast Texas, little to no impact is anticipated.

* Surge:
potential impacts from the main surge event are now unfolding for the
Bolivar Peninsula and vulnerable portions of Galveston Island.
Remain well away from locally hazardous surge having limited impacts. If
realized, these impacts include:
    - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along
      immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots.
    - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread
      with surge water. An example of this is Highway 87 on the Bolivar
Peninsula. Driving conditions are dangerous in places where
      surge water covers the Road.

Elsewhere across southeast Texas, little to no impact is anticipated.

* Tornadoes:
little to no impacts are anticipated at this time
across southeast Texas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* evacuations:
there is a voluntary evacuation in place for those with medical and other special
needs for the Bolivar Peninsula. There is the possibility of limited services
available for those along the Bolivar Peninsula around times of high tide from
Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning due to potential flooding along
Highway 87.


* Other preparedness information:
continue to keep your cell phone well charged for as long as
possible. If you lose power, use it more sparingly and mainly for
personal emergencies and check-ins.

If you are a visitor in the area, be sure you know the name of the County
you are in. Pay attention for instructions from local authorities.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes to
the forecast.

      swollen and overflow in spots.
    - A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow.

Elsewhere across southeast Texas, little to no impact is anticipated.

* Wind:
potential impacts from the main wind event are now unfolding across
coastal southeast Texas. Some locations... including Galveston... have
seen gusts in excess of 40 mph. If realized, wind impacts include:
    - unsecured lightweight objects blown around.
    - Some tree limbs down.
    - Isolated power outages.

Elsewhere across southeast Texas, little to no impact is anticipated.

* Surge:
potential impacts from the main surge event are now unfolding for the
Bolivar Peninsula and vulnerable portions of Galveston Island.
Remain well away from locally hazardous surge having limited impacts. If
realized, these impacts include:
    - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along
      immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots.
    - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread
      with surge water. An example of this is Highway 87 on the Bolivar
Peninsula. Driving conditions are dangerous in places where
      surge water covers the Road.

Elsewhere across southeast Texas, little to no impact is anticipated.

* Tornadoes:
little to no impacts are anticipated at this time
across southeast Texas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* evacuations:
there is a voluntary evacuation in place for those with medical and other special
needs for the Bolivar Peninsula. There is the possibility of limited services
available for those along the Bolivar Peninsula around times of high tide from
Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning due to potential flooding along
Highway 87.


* Other preparedness information:
continue to keep your cell phone well charged for as long as
possible. If you lose power, use it more sparingly and mainly for
personal emergencies and check-ins.

If you are a visitor in the area, be sure you know the name of the County
you are in. Pay attention for instructions from local authorities.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes to
the forecast.
