Greater Houston Area, August 28 – Mandatory and voluntary evacuations have begun to proceed in the Greater Houston Area as a result of Tropical Storm Harvey. Several neighborhoods in Fort Bend County, south and southwest of Houston, face particular threats, such as levees which water levels have overwhelmed.

Meanwhile, there appears to be little relief from the rain. The National Weather Service predicts that this area will continue to receive substantial rainfall through early evening, Wednesday, August 30. Montgomery County may receive as much as 12 to 18 inches of additional rainfall, particularly in the eastern and southern portions of the community.
