  • Tropical Cyclone Statement

    HLSCRP This product covers South Texas **Tropical Storm Alberto Continues to Impact all of South Texas** NEW INFORMATION --------------- * CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS: - None * CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS: - A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Aransas Islands, Calhoun Islands, Coastal Aransas, Coastal Calhoun, Coastal Kleberg, Coastal Nueces, Coastal Refugio, Coastal San Patricio, Inland Calhoun, Inland Kleberg, Inland Nueces, Inland Refugio, Inland San Patricio, Kleberg Islands, and Nueces Islands * STORM INFORMATION: - About 440 miles south of Port Aransas TX or about 480 miles south of Port Oconnor TX - 21.5N 95.9W - Storm Intensity 50 mph - Movement West or 260 degrees at 9 mph SITUATION OVERVIEW ------------------ Tropical Storm Alberto will continue on a westward track tonight with landfall expected early tomorrow morning along the coast of Mexico. The system is very large with tropical-storm-force-winds extending up to 400 miles north of the center. Across South Texas, Tropical Storm Warnings remain in effect along all coastal counties, the bays and Gulf waters out to 60 nm from Baffin Bay through Port O'Connor. In addition, there are several hazards expected to continue to impact the region through Thursday due to the large extent and slow movement of the storm. The threats include: - Flash Flooding: Moderate to high threat of flash flooding through Thursday. Additional widespread rainfall accumulations of 2-7", with localized rainfall amounts up to 10". - Coastal Flooding: Significant coastal flooding is ongoing with peak inundation of 3 ft possible across the Middle Texas Coast including the bays between Baffin Bay and Matagorda Bay. Elevated water levels are expected to linger through Friday. In addition, there is a High risk of rip currents. - River Flooding: Limited river flooding is possible on some rivers across the area, in particular the Nueces River along with Oso Creek and San Fernando Creek, are a concern. Other rivers could be added to the list depending on additional overnight rains. - Winds: Sustained winds of 35 mph with gusts to around 50 mph will be possible across the Coastal Bend, while winds of up to 40 knots can be expected over the bays and Gulf waters. - Tornadoes: Tornadoes and waterspouts will continue to be possible through Thursday morning within the outer bands of Alberto. There is currently a tornado watch in effect through 7AM Thursday across all of South Texas. - Hazardous Seas: Wave heights 12 to 16 feet. POTENTIAL IMPACTS ----------------- * FLOODING RAIN: Potential impacts from the flooding rain are still unfolding across the Southern Coastal plans and Southern Brush Country. Remain well guarded against life-threatening flood waters having possible extensive impacts. If realized, these impacts include: - Major rainfall flooding may prompt many evacuations and rescues. - Rivers and tributaries may rapidly overflow their banks in multiple places. Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become dangerous rivers. Flood control systems and barriers may become stressed. - Flood waters can enter many structures within multiple communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or washed away. Many places where flood waters may cover escape routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of moving water with underpasses submerged. Driving conditions become dangerous. Many road and bridge closures with some weakened or washed out. Potential impacts from the flooding rain are still unfolding across the rest of South Texas. Remain well guarded against dangerous flood waters having possible limited to significant impacts. * SURGE: Protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited impacts across the Coastal Bend. Potential impacts in this area include: - Localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore. - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous in places where surge water covers the road. - Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes, mainly in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents. - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers. A few small craft broken away from moorings. * TORNADOES: Potential impacts from tornadoes are still unfolding across the Brush Country and Coastal Bend. Remain well braced against a dangerous tornado event having possible significant impacts. If realized, these impacts include: - The occurrence of scattered tornadoes can hinder the execution of emergency plans during tropical events. - Several places may experience tornado damage with a few spots of considerable damage, power loss, and communications failures. - Locations could realize roofs torn off frame houses, mobile homes demolished, boxcars overturned, large trees snapped or uprooted, vehicles tumbled, and small boats tossed about. Dangerous projectiles can add to the toll. Potential impacts from tornadoes are still unfolding across the rest of South Texas. Remain well braced against a tornado event having possible limited impacts. * WIND: Protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across the Coastal Bend. Potential impacts in this area include: - Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about. - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over. - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on bridges and other elevated roadways. - Scattered power and communications outages. Elsewhere across South Texas, little to no impact is anticipated. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS ---------------------------------- * EVACUATIONS: Follow the advice of local officials. * OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION: Keep your cell phone charged and in power-saving mode. If you lose power, use it sparingly and mainly for personal emergencies and check-ins. If you are prone to flooding or in an area under a storm surge watch or warning, be prepared for the possibility of a quick and dramatic rise in water levels. If a tornado warning is issued for your area, quickly move to the safest place within your shelter. Protect your head and body. * ADDITIONAL SOURCES OF INFORMATION: - For information on Texas evacuation routes, see txdot.gov/driver/weather/hurricane.html - For information on creating emergency kits, see texasready.gov - For state assistance in an emergency event, tdem.texas.gov/response/state-of-texas-emergency-assistance-registry - For information on registering for emergency notifications in your area visit the websites below... - Corpus Christi and Nueces County: cctexas.com/reversealert - San Patricio, Aransas, and Refugio County: coastalplainlepc.org - Victoria County: vctx.org/page/oem.home - Calhoun County: www.calhouncotx.org NEXT UPDATE ----------- The next local statement will be issued by the National Weather Service in Corpus Christi TX around 4 AM CDT, or sooner if conditions warrant.More
