There are widespread power outages reported in the area. Fort Bend County Judge KP George said about 25 percent of customers are now without power, while 600,000 Houston residents have lost power. Here are some tips to keep warm when the power is out:
We are still under a Hard Freeze Warning until noon tomorrow (Tuesday, Feb. 16), which means sub-freezing temperatures are expected and could damage unprotected outdoor plumbing, kill crops and other sensitive vegetation. We are also under a Wind Chill Warning until noon tomorrow: Very cold air and strong winds will create dangerously low wind chill values. This will result in frost bite and lead to hypothermia. Avoid being outside, if possible.
Many area roads are covered with ice and snow. Also, power outages mean some traffic signals are not working. Therefore, City officials recommend that you stay at home. Due to hazardous conditions, officials also report several road closures in the Missouri City area: Missouri City officials said the following roads are closed: Brazos River Bridge (FM 723), Arredondo Bridge, I-69 NB from Hwy 36 to FM 762, I-69 SB from Reading Rd. to Cottonwood Church Rd.
