Brazos River Forecast Update – 1/7/2019 @ 9AM

The National Weather Service has issued a forecast showing the Brazos River cresting on Wednesday at a gage elevation of 45.0. This will result in very minor flooding around Fort Bend County. One local issue is that the U-Turn at I69/US59 has been closed by the City of Sugar Land due to the rising water. No other impacts are expected within the District.

The LID 17 team will continue to monitor the river and weather forecasts to maintain preparedness for situations that may arise and potentially impact our community.
