After getting over 15 inches of rain during two separate storms over the past week, plus the possibility of even more dropping tonight/tomorrow, first responders and citizens alike are not taking any chances and preparing for the worst.

Houston Police Department (HPD) has staged additional units for high water rescue at the Kingwood HPD and HFD stations, as well as having multiple Marine Units at the ready.
 
Many citizens are also taking precautions during the break in the weather by stocking up on a few supplies and topping off their tanks...Which is a good idea. Better safe than sorry.

Some things to keep in mind:
 
- Stay put and avoid driving; go to and stay at a safe location.
 
- Park your car in your driveway, not in the street
 
- Do not drive through floodwaters, Turn Around Don’t Drown!
 
- Never drive around barricades! Avoid underpasses and low-lying areas
 
- If water is rising inside your vehicle, seek refuge on top; if your vehicle is sinking, get out
 
- If trapped in a building, go to its highest level
 
- If your home is flooding, do not climb into a closed attic because you may get trapped there
 
- Have a way to get emergency alerts; listen to authorities for information and instructions
 
- Avoid wading in floodwater; it can contain dangerous debris, contamination, wildlife or downed power lines
 
- Use a generator or other gasoline powered machinery only outdoors and away from windows
 
- In the event of a life threatening emergency, please contact 9-1-1.
 
- Please report anything that may occur such as clogged storm drains, storm debris, structural flooding, etc. to Houston 311 by calling (713)-837-0311.

On a personal note, I want y'all to please be careful and stay inside if you can. We don't want anything happening to our KDC family. Check back here for updates as HPD will be sending info to us about roads, trees, detours, etc..

@Weathergirl5 : Yes, we're all home safe and sound. I'll be up keeping y'all informed (if need be) most of the night, and I'm sure Joe will be checking on the site periodically.
 
A couple of our staff members were affected by Tuesday's soaking, so please keep them in your TAPs.
 
Be safe.
