The National Weather Service previously predicted a 53.5 crest, which has been surpassed. Weather reports are suggesting scattered showers the next few days with a possibility of localized rainfall in some areas. This localized rainfall could cause area flooding as drainage areas are full and the ground is saturated.
Missouri City officials have held conference calls with the Texas State Emergency Operations Center and the Fort Bend County Office of Emergency Management to continue coordination of Emergency Management response to the Brazos River flooding.
Due to high-water levels, the following roads are currently closed:
City crews are currently monitoring storm drains on an hourly basis and Staff is continuing to provide updates in real-time to residents via the citizens’ communications tools.
“During the next 12 – 24 hours, as the cresting of the Brazos River makes its way south, residents can expect to see street flooding along Sienna Parkway from the Fort Bend Toll Road to McKeever Road,” said Emergency Management Coordinator Jaime Ponce De Leon.
Citizens are encouraged to be cautious about high water on neighborhood streets and potential damage to their personal property. During periods of flooding, motorists are reminded when encountering water to: Turn Around Don’t Drown. Also, citizens should avoid parking in the street to allow emergency management and public safety vehicles clear passage.
