Hurricane Statement
Issued: 6:58 PM CDT Sep. 17, 2019 – National Weather Service

This product covers southeast Texas

**imelda weakens to a depression... but the threat of heavy rains
and flooding still lie ahead**

New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - the Tropical Storm Warning has been cancelled for Brazoria
      islands, coastal Brazoria, coastal Galveston, coastal Harris,
      and Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula

* current watches and warnings:
    - none

* storm information:
    - about 10 miles south of Houston TX
    - 29.6n 95.4w
    - storm intensity 35 mph
    - movement north or 350 degrees at 7 mph

Situation overview
------------------

With this advisory, Imelda has become a tropical depression,
and all tropical storm warnings have been dropped. However, the
weakening of winds should not distract from the fact that heavy,
flood producing rains remain the primary threat with this storm.
These rains are still yet to reach their peak danger as the center
of the depression slowly drifts around southeast Texas in the coming
days.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
potential impacts from the flooding rain are still unfolding across
the Upper Texas Gulf Coast. 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
southeast Texas. Remain well guarded against dangerous
flood waters having possible limited to significant impacts.

* Surge:
little to no impacts are anticipated at this time
across southeast Texas.

* Tornadoes:
little to no impacts are anticipated at this time
across southeast Texas.

* Wind:
little to no impacts are anticipated at this time
across southeast Texas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* evacuations:
do not enter impacted areas until officials
have given the all clear to return.

* Other preparedness information:
if you are prone to flooding or in an area under a Flash Flood Watch
or warning, be prepared for the possibility of a quick and dramatic
rise in water levels.

* Additional sources of information:
- for information on appropriate preparations see ready.Gov
- for information on creating an emergency plan see getagameplan.Org
- for additional disaster preparedness information see Redcross.Org

Next update
-----------

The next local statement will be issued by the National Weather
Service in Houston/Galveston TX as conditions warrant.

738 PM CDT Tue Sep 17 2019

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Wednesday afternoon...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of southeast Texas... including the following
counties... Brazoria islands... Chambers... coastal Brazoria...
coastal Galveston... coastal Harris... coastal Matagorda... Fort
Bend... Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula... inland
Brazoria... inland Galveston... inland Harris... inland
Matagorda... Matagorda islands... northern Liberty... southern
Liberty and Wharton.

* Through Wednesday afternoon

* the remnants of tropical storm Imelda continue to bring deep
tropical moisture across southeast Texas and support numerous
shower and isolated thunderstorm development. Some of the rain
will be locally heavy... generally near and to the south of a
line from Liberty the Houston area to the Sweeny area. Portions
of southern Harris, Brazoria and Galveston counties could be
especially vulnerable this evening and on through the overnight
hours. Additional rainfall totals of 4 to 6 inches with locally
higher amounts will be possible... especially where any training
sets up.

* The Flash Flood Watch will probably need to be extended
through Wednesday night over parts of southeast Texas and may
also need to be expanded further north.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize
the dangers of floods and flash floods. If flash flooding is
observed... act quickly. Move up to escape flood waters. Do not
stay in areas subject to flooding when water begins rising.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
