From the Liberty County Office of Emergency Management, County Judge Jay Knight and Emergency Management Coordinator Crista Beasley-Adams want to assure all Liberty County residents that officials throughout the county are prepared in the event of a Tropical Storm making landfall. We encourage all citizens to be alert and be prepared.
It is hurricane season, and if you haven't made preparations for the season, we encourage you to prepare now. Get your emergency kits stocked up with nonperishable food items, plenty of water, medications, pet supplies, and supplies for children. Your kit should have enough supplies for a minimum of 72 hours for each family member, however, we encourage 7 days worth of supplies. Also, keep your vehicles full of fuel and have some extra cash on hand.
If you need tips on preparing kits please visit www.Ready.qov.
Register your phone and/or email with NlXLE to get the latest updates for your area. You can text your zip code to 888777 or visit nixle.com. [Should you have a special need such that in the event of an emergency] you would require assistance, please register with STEAR (State of Texas Emergency Assistance Registry) by calling 211.
Tropical weather can be unpredictable and forecasts can change rapidly. We are monitoring this situation very closely and encourage you to do the same. However, be mindful that there are many false reports posted to social media in times like this. Please monitor the National Hurricane Center, National Weather Service Houston-Galveston Texas, local news media outlets, and our Liberty County Office of Emergency Management Facebook page for credible information.
