Important Storm Resources

Below please find a variety of helpful resources you can use to prepare for a storm as well as during a storm.

Resources for Preparing for a Storm

Harris County Flood Education Mapping Tool. Learn if your location is vulnerable to stream flooding. The tool’s purpose is for Harris County residents to learn the location of their properties in relation to mapped 1% (100-year), 0.2% (500-year) and coastal floodplains. It includes regularly updated floodplain information.


Hurricane Preparedness for People with Disabilities. For people with disabilities and their families, it is important to consider individual circumstances and needs to effectively prepare for emergencies and disasters.
