Houstonians prepare for storms headed toward Gulf Coast

HOUSTON – Grocery stores may be a little extra busy this weekend as people are watching two storms headed toward the Gulf Coast.

“I was watching the news last night and they just said that it’s the best time to stock up with some necessities,” said Christina Guerrero.

Some Houstonians were already getting prepared Friday morning.

“I got some water and some cereal for my brother,” said Guerrero.

Harris County leaders said it’s a perfect time.

“We’re coming into a weekend before hurricane season gets ramped up traditionally. This is a good time to get your supplies so you’re not rushing to the store,” said Francisco Sanchez with the Harris County Office of Emergency Management.

One couple said they made sure to come early.

“It was his day off and the sooner we get to the store and home, the better and just be home ready,” said Marissa.
