Montgomery County Precinct 3 Commissioner, James Noack held a meeting Saturday with local officials to prepare for the severe weather Tropical Depression Patricia will bring.
Officials from the Precinct 3 Constables office,Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Districts 2 & 6, The Woodlands and Timber lakes-Timber Ridge Fire Departments, South County Fire Department and Montgomery County Hospital District were all in attendance. “I brought these entities together so we could discuss our plan of action to respond to this potential weather event. I have full trust in my team and we stand ready to address this situation. We have assets staged in various places across the precinct to monitor and respond accordingly,” said Noack.
South Montgomery County is expected to receive 10-12 inches of rainfall. “We have two areas that generally, when we get this amount of rain, will have some flooding potential and we will be watching those areas and ready to deploy,” said Robert Hudson, Fire Chief of South Montgomery County Fire Department. “One of the other things that we want to say to the citizens out there is that, with this kind of a rain event, with the amount of rain we are going to get in a very short period of time, that if they see water across the road do not try to drive through it then please turn around and do not drown.”
Montgomery County Precinct 3 Constable Ryan Gable and Noack have been working together to make sure they are prepared for this severe weather event. “For the Constable’s office we will be doing routine patrols through the Spring Creek area, watch for the water to rise, so we will be covering South Montgomery County and will be updating periodically,” said Gable.
Residents of Precinct 3 are encouraged to stay aware of the weather updates that Woodlands Monocle will be posting throughout the day.
