Rain continues for area as Tropical Storm Harvey moves east
The National Weather Service's Houston office (NWS) reports this morning that Tropical Storm Harvey is disorganized and currently located over Matagorda Bay. It is not expected to intensify as it moves out over the water and then northeast over the next few days, but it is possible. With breakdown and movement of the storm, NWS predicts less rainfall in the Huntsville area today, although flash flooding is possible. The threat of tornadoes is also reduced as the forecast for them has moved to counties in extreme southeast Texas and to western Louisiana.
1-2 inches of rainfall is expected for Huntsville this afternoon and tonight, but up to 10-15 inches over the next four days, storm dependent.
114 individuals are sheltering at the Walker County Storm Shelter and 21 have been received at Huntsville High School. Call 936-435-8035 to volunteer or if you need assistance on a non-emergency basis.
