NTO - Tropical Weather Outlook

June 18, 2024

The National Weather Service is projecting a tropical weather system to affect several parts of Texas with heavy rainfall over the next several days. The potential for heavy rainfall or flooding could impact coastal and South Texas counties, and counties in the Eagle Ford into Central Texas.

The Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) advises all operators under the RRC’s jurisdiction in areas of potential impact to take the following actions:

  • Monitor local, state and national weather reports for updates on potential severe weather impacts;
  • Heed all watches, warnings, and orders issued by local emergency officials;
  • Secure all personnel, equipment, and facilities to prevent injury or damage; and,
  • Monitor and prepare operations for potential impacts, as safety permits.

The RRC maintains a 24-hour, toll-free emergency line, 844-773-0305, to report emergencies, including leaks or spills and damage to gas pipelines.

In addition, operators can monitor Texas highway conditions during potential flooding on the Drive Texas website at www.DriveTexas.org.
