Invest 91L Has 80% Chance To Develop Into Storm; Eyes South Texas, Rio Grande Valley
With the peak of hurricane season rapidly approaching, residents of South Texas should be gearing up for some turbulent weather. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has its eye on multiple areas in the Atlantic, including a brewing tropical disturbance earmarked for South Texas, promising heavy rainfall in its wake.
While the NHC also monitors Tropical Storms Emily, Franklin, and Gert, of particular concern to the Lone Star State is the disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico, dubbed Invest 91L. This disturbance, which has shown increased thunderstorm activity and improved organization, has a high likelihood (around 80%) of evolving into a tropical depression as it veers toward Texas over the next two days.
With potential tropical storm watches and warnings on the horizon for South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley, it’s vital for residents to prepare not just for the imminent storm but for its aftermath as well.
Before the Storm: Emergency Preparation
- Stock Up on Essentials: Ensure you have enough food, water, and medicines to last at least 72 hours. Non-perishable food items, battery-operated lanterns, flashlights, extra batteries, and a first aid kit should be on your checklist.
- Secure Your Home: If you have storm shutters, ensure they are in good working order. If not, consider boarding up windows with plywood. Remember to secure or store outdoor furniture and other loose items that could become projectiles.
- Stay Informed: Regularly check local news updates and weather alerts. Evacuate if instructed by local authorities.
- Prepare for Flooding: With the FOX Forecast Center predicting a general rainfall of 1-3 inches across South Texas (with some areas receiving up to 5 inches), flash flooding is a real concern. Elevate essential items and electronics.
After the Storm: Filing Claims and Seeking Assistance
- Assess the Damage: Once it’s safe to do so, inspect your property for storm-related damages. Keep an eye out for tell-tale signs like water stains, lifted shingles, or broken windows.
- Document Everything: Photograph and videotape all damages. This will be crucial for your insurance claim.
