The Seabrook Office of Emergency Management, along with essential city personnel, are closely monitoring Tropical Depression 8 (TD8), which formed in the Gulf of Mexico yesterday evening. The National Weather Service is currently predicting that TD8 will develop into Tropical Storm Hanna sometime on Friday, July 24, 2020.
The current model projects that the storm will track south of Seabrook, making landfall sometime Saturday in the vicinity of Matagorda Bay. The primary threat for the Houston-Galveston region will be heavy rainfall with the potential for flooding, particularly Friday and Saturday. Gusty winds to tropical-storm-force winds are possible near the coast in addition to rough surf and elevated tide levels.
Now is the time to get Seabrook Ready by reviewing your emergency plan and ensuring you have everyday essentials readily available. The City of Seabrook encourages the public to stay informed about the storm by monitoring the National Weather Service, local media, and the City of Seabrook’s social media pages.
