[ARCHIVED] Tropical Weather Update and Advisory

Harvey regained tropical storm strength overnight and as of 4:00 a.m. was about 425 miles south-southeast of Port O'Connor, Texas. Some additional strengthening during the next 48 hours is forecasted and Harvey is expected to become a hurricane by Friday.

Seabrook is currently under a Tropical Storm Warning and Storm Surge Watch. So what does this mean? 

WATCH: Let's you know that weather conditions are favorable for a hazard to occur. It means "be on guard". As of right now we have the possibility of experiencing some storm surge from this event.

WARNING: This means a weather hazard is imminent and it is occurring or it is important to take action. With Harvey's current track, Seabrook is likely to see some tropical storm force winds and heavy rain.

As always make sure you are prepared and stay informed during the storm. As Harvey approaches we will keep our residents informed through our website at, Nextdoor, Facebook, Twitter and our Swift911 Seabrook Alert system.

Visit for updates from the Hurricane Center directly.

Seabrook is now under a Tropical Storm Watch as Tropical Depression Harvey continues to strengthen in the Gulf. It is still very uncertain where exactly along the Texas coast Harvey will make landfall, however, at this time, current models predict that Seabrook will be on the east side of the storm.

The primary threat associated with this storm will be rain and possibly flash flooding. The City of Seabrook will barricade and close streets that become impassable during the storm. Rain, wind and high tide will most likely start Thursday afternoon/evening into Friday morning and is expected to stick around all weekend and into Monday. The forecast and storm models are subject to change.
