KPRC's 2017 Hurricane & Flood Survival Guide

HOUSTON – The Houston-area has been hammered by severe flooding events in the last couple years, but it’s been nearly a decade since our last big tropical threat.   

Many of you lived through the devastation of Hurricane Ike in 2008 or sat in the evacuation gridlock during Hurricane Rita in 2005, but there are a lot of new Houstonians who have never experienced a hurricane, tropical threat, or evacuation of that magnitude.

KPRC’s severe weather team helps get you ready for whatever Mother Nature brings our way in the future with our Hurricane and Flood Survival Guide 2017.

We look at the hurricane forecast, the worst storms of the past, and how to get your family, including your children, ready for the next disaster.  We review the changes that have been made to better forecast a storm’s path and show you the evacuation routes for our area.  We help you identify the safest room in your home to stay in if riding out a storm, identify what NOT to do during flooding, and offer information to get your communications plan, your insurance coverage, and your emergency kits in order before it’s too late. 

It’s thirty minutes that will get you ready and keep you safe the next time a tropical system takes aim on Southeast Texas.
