PRESS RELEASE — Jul 25, 2020

AUSTIN — Today Land Commissioner George P. Bush and the Texas General Land Office team members are working with federal, state and local partners monitoring Hurricane Hanna throughout South Texas, including Rio Grande Valley and Coastal Bend. The National Hurricane Center predicts the system will bring tropical-storm-force winds, heavy rains and flash flooding to portions of the Texas coast.

"State officials are closely monitoring the approaching storm situation in the Coastal Bend and Rio Grande Valley," said Commissioner Bush. "We urge everyone to take caution and pay attention to local weather warnings. It could save the lives of you and your loved ones."

The GLO is urging Texas residents to prepare now - know their risk, sign up for updates, make a go kit with sanitizer and face masks, secure important documents, and have an evacuation plan. The time to prepare is not when the storm is hours away, it's now.

Folks need to remember a tropical system does not have to be hurricane strength to be deadly. Tropical storms can produce strong winds, as well as heavy rainfall, which can lead to flooding.

Be Prepared, Stay Prepared:
