LSC Alert

LSC is actively monitoring Tropical Depression Beta

Tropical Depression Beta Discussion Number 21 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL 4 PM CDT Tues Sep 22, 2020

  • Significant flash and urban flooding is occurring and will continue for the middle and upper Texas coast today. The slow motion of Beta will continue to produce a long duration rainfall event from the middle Texas coast to southern Louisiana. Flash, urban, and minor to isolated moderate river flooding is likely. Periods of rainfall will spread east into the Lower Mississippi Valley, portions of the Tennessee Valley, and the Southeast through the end of the week. Flash, urban, and isolated minor river flooding is possible on smaller rivers.
  • Persistent onshore flow will continue to result in above normal high tides, and coastal flooding over the next few days will be slow to recede. For information on the ongoing coastal flooding, please refer to coastal flood products issued by local National Weather Service offices.

In The Event of An Emergency

Our ability to survive a disaster also depends on you doing your part to prepare for the unexpected. When calling an emergency assistance number, remember to:

  1. Give your name, location and phone number.
  2. Describe what happened.
  3. Do not hang up until asked to do so.

Look for information from your Lone Star Email (UserID@lonestar.edu or UserID@my.lonestar.edu), Twitter, and local media sources.
