**NICHOLAS TO BRING LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN AND A POTENTIAL FOR STRONG 
WIND GUSTS TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY** 
 
NEW INFORMATION
---------------

* CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
    - None

* CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
    - A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for De Witt, Fayette, and 
      Lavaca

* STORM INFORMATION:
    - About 140 miles south-southeast of Hallettsville TX or about 
      130 miles south-southeast of Cuero TX
    - 27.4N 96.4W
    - Storm Intensity 65 mph
    - Movement North-northeast or 15 degrees at 12 mph

SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

Tropical Storm Nicholas will continue to move north and is expected to
make landfall along the middle Texas coast this evening then move 
through southeast Texas on Tuesday. There still remains a potential for
tropical storm force wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph over DeWitt, Fayette, 
and Lavaca counties, A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for these 
counties. These tropical storm force winds are most likely to arrive 
tonight into early Tuesday morning. In addition, locally heavy rainfall
could lead to minor flooding in some areas tonight through Tuesday. 
Rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches are forecast across DeWitt, Lavaca, 
and Fayette counties, with locally higher amounts possible.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* FLOODING RAIN:
Protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible 
significant impacts across the Coastal Plains. Potential impacts 
include:
    - Moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations and 
      rescues.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with swifter 
      currents and overspill their banks in a few places, especially 
      in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams, creeks, canals, 
      usually dry creek beds, and ditches overflow.
    - Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken foundations. 
      Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid 
      inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage 
      areas. Some streets and parking lots take on moving water as 
      storm drains and retention ponds overflow. Driving conditions 
      become hazardous. Some low water crossings could become flooded 
      and turn deadly if attempting to pass through. Some road and 
      bridge closures.

Elsewhere across South Central Texas, little to no impact is 
anticipated.

* WIND:
Protect against dangerous wind having possible significant impacts 
across Lavaca County. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - Some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage 
      to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings 
      experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile 
      homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight 
      objects become dangerous projectiles.
    - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater 
      numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several 
      fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban 
      or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access 
      routes impassable.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent 
      in areas with above ground lines.

Also, protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts 
across Fayette and DeWitt counties.

* TORNADOES:
Little to no impacts are anticipated at this time across South 
Central Texas.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------

* EVACUATIONS:
WATCH/WARNING PHASE - No mandatory evacuations are in effect. Follow 
the instructions of local officials.


* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:
Now is the time to complete all preparations to protect life and 
property in accordance with your emergency plan. Ensure you are in a 
safe location before the onset of strong winds or possible flooding.

Rapidly rising flood waters are deadly. If you are in a flood-prone 
area, consider moving to higher ground. Never drive through a flooded 
roadway. Remember, turn around don't drown!

Closely monitor weather.gov, NOAA Weather radio or local news outlets 
for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes 
to the forecast. Ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather 
warnings.

-----------------

* FLOODING RAIN:
Potential impacts from the flooding rain are still unfolding across
Lavaca and De Witt Counties. Remain well guarded against life-
threatening flood waters having possible extensive impacts. If 
realized, these impacts include:
    - Rivers and tributaries may rapidly overflow their banks in 
      multiple places. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and 
      ditches may become dangerous rivers. In mountain areas, 
      destructive runoff may run quickly down valleys while increasing 
      susceptibility to rockslides and mudslides. 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.

Elsewhere across South Central Texas, little to no impact is 
anticipated.

* WIND:
Potential impacts from the main wind event are now unfolding across
Lavaca and De Witt Counties. Remain well sheltered from hazardous wind
having possible limited impacts. If realized, these impacts include:
    - Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored 
      mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Some large tree limbs broken off. Some fences and roadway signs 
      blown over.
    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban 
      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on 
      bridges and other elevated roadways.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

Elsewhere across South Central Texas, little to no impact is 
anticipated.

possible. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for DeWitt, Fayette, and 
Lavaca counties. 

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* FLOODING RAIN:
Protect against life-threatening rainfall flooding having possible
extensive impacts across DeWitt, Fayette, and Lavaca counties. 
Potential 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, arroyos, and 
      ditches may become dangerous rivers. In mountain areas, 
      destructive runoff may run quickly down valleys while 
      increasing susceptibility to rockslides and mudslides. 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.

Protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible limited 
to significant impacts across Gonzales County.

Elsewhere across South Central Texas, little to no impact is 
anticipated.

* WIND:
Protect against dangerous wind having possible significant impacts
across Dewitt and Lavaca counties. Potential impacts in this area 
include:
    - Some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage 
      to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings 
      experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile 
      homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight 
      objects become dangerous projectiles.
    - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater 
      numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several 
      fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban 
      or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access 
      routes impassable.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent 
      in areas with above ground lines.

Also, protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts 
across Fayette and Gonzales counties.

Elsewhere across South Central Texas, little to no impact is 
anticipated.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------

* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:

Keep cell phones well charged. Cell phone chargers for automobiles 
can be helpful, but be aware of your risk for deadly carbon monoxide 
poisoning if your car is left idling in a garage or other poorly 
ventilated area.

Rapidly rising flood waters are deadly. If you are in a flood-prone 
area, consider moving to higher ground. Never drive through a flooded 
roadway. Remember, turn around don't drown!

Closely monitor weather.gov, NOAA Weather radio or local news outlets 
for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes 
to the forecast. Ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather 
warnings.

Tropical Storm Harvey Local Statement Advisory Number 33
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX  AL092017
1030 AM CDT Mon Aug 28 2017

This product covers SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS

**Tropical storm Harvey continues to bring life threatening flooding
 east of I-35 and I-37**

NEW INFORMATION
---------------

* CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
    - The Tropical Storm Warning has been cancelled for De Witt and 
      Lavaca

* CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
    - None

* STORM INFORMATION:
    - About 90 miles east-southeast of Cuero TX
    - 28.5N 96.0W
    - Storm Intensity 40 mph
    - Movement Southeast or 125 degrees at 5 mph

SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

Harvey remains a Tropical Storm and has moved to near the Texas coast.
Maximum sustained winds within Harvey are around 40 mph. With Harvey 
continuing to move away, the Tropical Storm Warnings for De Witt and
Lavaca Counties have been cancelled. This cancels all of the tropical
storm warnings for South Central Texas.

While life-threatening flooding continues for Bastrop, Caldwell, De 
Witt, Fayette, Gonzales, Guadalupe, Lavaca, and Lee Counties, forecast
rainfall totals through mid-week continue to lessen as the forecast 
track for Harvey becomes more confidently eastward. Since Friday 
morning, widespread observed rainfall totals of over 20 inches have 
occurred east of I-35 with several reports over 25 inches.

Additional rainfall totals of 1-4 inches with isolated areas of
6 inches are still anticipated in these areas through Wednesday which
could continue the flooding impacts already observed east of
I-35.

Winds will gust to 20-30 mph today across the area along and east of
I-35 and I-37.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* FLOODING RAIN:
Potential impacts from the flooding rain are still unfolding across the
area east of I-35 and I-37. Remain well guarded against locally
hazardous flood waters having additional limited impacts. If realized,
these impacts include:
    - Localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents. 
      Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become 
      swollen and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually 
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water 
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage 
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become 
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief road and bridge 
      closures. 

Elsewhere across SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS, little to no impact is 
anticipated.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------

* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:
Now is the time to remain safely sheltered from the storm. Stay inside
and away from windows. Listen for updates and be ready in case you 
lose electrical power. Locate your battery powered radio and flashlight
from your Emergency Supplies Kit. Keep these items close.

Continue to keep your cell phone well charged for as long as possible.
If you lose power, use it more sparingly and mainly for personal 
emergencies and check-ins. Do not overload communications systems with 
idle chatter.

Do not be a thrill seeker or risk your life for senseless photos or 
videos. Be wise and avoid becoming another statistic.

Tropical Storm Harvey Local Statement Advisory Number 32
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX  AL092017
418 AM CDT Mon Aug 28 2017

This product covers SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS

**Tropical storm Harvey continues to bring life threatening flooding 
east of I-35 and I-37** 


NEW INFORMATION
---------------

* CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
    - The Tropical Storm Warning has been cancelled for Gonzales

* CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
    - A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for De Witt and Lavaca

* STORM INFORMATION:
    - About 150 miles southeast of Austin TX or about 140 miles 
      east-southeast of San Antonio TX
    - 28.6N 96.3W
    - Storm Intensity 40 mph
    - Movement Southeast or 130 degrees at 3 mph

SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

Harvey remains a Tropical Storm as of 4AM this morning, continuing to 
slowly move southeast towards the Mid Texas coastline. Maximum 
sustained winds within Harvey are around 40 mph. With Harvey continuing
to weaken, the Tropical Storm Warning for Gonzales has been cancelled 
as well as the Wind Advisory for South Central Texas. 

While life-threatening flooding continues for Bastrop, Caldwell,
DeWitt, Fayette, Gonzales, Lavaca, and Lee counties, forecast rainfall
totals through mid-week continue to lessen as the forecast track for
Harvey becomes more confidently eastward. Yet, as of 4AM, Flash Flood
Warnings are still valid for Bastrop, Caldwell, Lee, and Fayette
counties as well as Gonzales County. Since Friday morning, widespread
observed rainfall totals of over 20 inches have occurred east of
Interstate 35. Isolated totals as high as 30 inches have fallen across
Fayette County. 

Additional rainfall totals of 1-4 inches with isolated areas of
6 inches are still anticipated in these areas through Wednesday which
could continue the flooding impacts already observed east of
Interstate 35. Across Travis County, including the city of Austin, up
to an inch of rain is possible. Generally less than an inch is
expected for the city of San Antonio from this point forward.

Winds will gust to 30-45 mph today in the area under the counties
remaining under the tropical storm warning. Elsewhere, wind gusts will
range from 20-30 mph.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* FLOODING RAIN:
Potential impacts from the flooding rain are still unfolding across
areas mainly in Bastrop, Caldwell, DeWitt, Fayette, Gonzales, Lavaca,
and Lee counties. Remain well guarded against life-threatening flood
waters having additional devastating impacts. If realized, these 
impacts include:
    - Extreme rainfall flooding may prompt numerous evacuations and 
      rescues.
    - Rivers and tributaries may overwhelmingly overflow their banks 
      in many places with deep moving water. Small streams, creeks, 
      canals, arroyos, and ditches may become raging rivers. In 
      mountain areas, deadly runoff may rage down valleys while 
      increasing susceptibility to rockslides and mudslides. Flood 
      control systems and barriers may become stressed.
    - Flood waters can enter numerous structures within multiple 
      communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or washed 
      away. Numerous places where flood waters may cover escape 
      routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of raging water 
      with underpasses submerged. Driving conditions become very 
      dangerous. Numerous road and bridge closures with some weakened 
      or washed out.

Elsewhere across SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS, little to no impact is 
anticipated.

* WIND:
Potential impacts from the main wind event are now unfolding across the
tropical storm warning. Remain well sheltered from hazardous wind
having additional limited impacts. If realized, these impacts include:
    - Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored 
      mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or 
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are 
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban 
      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on 
      bridges and other elevated roadways.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

Elsewhere across SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS, little to no impact is 
anticipated.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------
* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:
Now is the time to remain safely sheltered from the storm. Stay inside
and away from windows. Listen for updates and be ready in case you 
lose electrical power. Locate your battery powered radio and flashlight
from your Emergency Supplies Kit. Keep these items close.

Continue to keep your cell phone well charged for as long as possible.
If you lose power, use it more sparingly and mainly for personal 
emergencies and check-ins. Do not overload communications systems with 
idle chatter.

Do not be a thrill seeker or risk your life for senseless photos or 
videos. Be wise and avoid becoming another statistic.

Be ready to move to the identified safe room if your home or shelter 
begins to fail. Quickly move to an interior room on the lowest floor. 
Put as many sturdy walls between you and the storm as you can. 
Protect your head and body.
