After last year's close call with Hurricane Laura and predictions of an above-average storm season, Houstonians are urged to act now.

QUINTANA, Texas (KTRK) -- A mandatory evacuation has been issued for Quintana in Brazoria County in response to Tropical Storm Nicholas.

In a post by the Brazoria County Sheriff's Office, the evacuation begins at 3 p.m.

As Tropical Storm Nicholas moves closer to the Texas coastline, officials across the Houston area have already told residents to plan to head somewhere safe indoors by sunset Monday.

No evacuations have been issued for other areas. We will continue to update this post as more information becomes available.
