[02/18/21]   How can I prevent CO poisoning in my home?

-Install a battery-operated or battery back-up CO detector in your home and check or replace the battery when you change the time on your clocks each spring and fall. Place your detector where it will wake you up if it alarms, such as outside your bedroom. Consider buying a detector with a digital readout. This detector can tell you the highest level of CO concentration in your home in addition to alarming. Replace your CO detector every five years.

-Have your heating system, water heater, and any other gas, oil, or coal burning appliances serviced by a qualified technician every year.

-Do not use portable flameless chemical heaters indoors.

-If you smell an odor from your gas refrigerator have an expert service, it. An odor from your gas refrigerator can mean it could be leaking CO.

-When you buy gas equipment, buy only equipment carrying the seal of a national testing agency, such as Underwriters’ Laboratories.

-Make sure your gas appliances are vented properly. Horizontal vent pipes for appliances, such as a water heater, should go up slightly as they go toward outdoors, as shown below. This prevents CO from leaking if the joints or pipes aren’t fitted tightly.

-Have your chimney checked or cleaned every year. Chimneys can be blocked by debris. This can cause CO to build up inside your home or cabin.

-Never patch a vent pipe with tape, gum, or something else. This kind of patch can make CO build up in your home, cabin, or camper.

-Never use a gas range or oven for heating. Using a gas range or oven for heating can cause a buildup of CO inside your home, cabin, or camper.

-Never burn charcoal indoors. Burning charcoal – red, gray, black, or white – gives off CO.

-Never use a portable gas camp stove indoors. Using a gas camp stove indoors can cause CO to build up inside your home, cabin, or camper.

-Never use a generator inside your home, basement, or garage or less than 20 feet from any window, door, or vent.

-When using a generator, use a battery-powered or battery backup CO detector in your home.-

Entergy Update: rolling outages are expected for the next 3 days. Mainly in the heat of the day when the demand is high and the grid becomes unbalanced.

Residents are urged to prepare for additional outages for the next few days and prepare.

Some areas of our county are starting to see power coming back online. This takes time to do so safely and in a balanced way to avoid damaging the grid.

We have established a hub for information:

10pm Update

...EXTREMELY DANGEROUS HURRICANE LAURA CLOSING IN ON THE NORTHWEST GULF COAST...
...CATASTROPHIC STORM SURGE, EXTREME WINDS, AND FLASH FLOODING EXPECTED TONIGHT AND EARLY THURSDAY...

*** A Storm Surge Warning is in effect for...
* Freeport Texas to the Mouth of the Mississippi River
*** A Hurricane Warning is in effect for...
* San Luis Pass Texas to Intracoastal City Louisiana
*** A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for...
* Sargent Texas to San Luis Pass
* East of Intracoastal City Louisiana to the Mouth of the
Mississippi River
*** A Hurricane Watch is in effect for...
* East of Intracoastal City to west of Morgan City Louisiana

Hurricane conditions are expected in the hurricane warning area tonight and Thursday morning, with catastrophic wind damage expected where Laura's eyewall moves onshore. Tropical storm conditions are moving onshore along the coast of Louisiana within the tropical storm warning area and are expected to spread northward within the warning areas overnight. Hurricane-force winds and damaging wind gusts are also expected to spread well inland into portions of eastern Texas and western Louisiana early Thursday.

Unsurvivable storm surge with large and destructive waves will cause catastrophic damage from Sea Rim State Park, Texas, to Intracoastal City, Louisiana, including Calcasieu and Sabine Lakes. This surge could pe*****te up to 40 miles inland from the immediate coastline, and flood waters will not fully recede for several days after the storm.

Several tornadoes are expected tonight over Louisiana,far southeast Texas, and southwestern Mississippi. The risk fortornadoes will continue on Thursday across Louisiana, Arkansas, and western Mississippi.

At 10 p.m. CDT, the center of Hurricane Laura was located about 75 miles (120 km) south of Lake Charles, La. It's moving toward the north-northwest near 15 mph (24 km/h). A turn toward the north is expected by early Thursday, and a northward motion should continue through the day. A northeastward to east-northeastward motion is expected Thursday night and Friday. On the forecast track, Laura will make landfall along the southwest Louisiana coast within the next few hours and move inland within that area early Thursday. The center of Laura is forecast to move over northwestern Louisiana on Thursday, across Arkansas Thursday night, and over the mid-Mississippi Valley on Friday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 150 mph (240 km/h) with higher gusts - an extremely dangerous category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 miles (335 km). A sustained wind of 43 mph (69 km/h) and a gust to 49 mph (80 km/h) were recently reported by a National Ocean Service station at Texas Point, Texas, at Sabine Pass. A wind gust to 58 mph (93 km/h) was recently reported at Cameron, Louisiana. No significant change in strength is likely before landfall. Rapid weakening is expected after Laura moves inland.

The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. The water could reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...
- Johnson Bayou LA to Rockefeller Wildlife Refuge including Calcasieu Lake...15-20 ft
- Sea Rim State Park TX to Johnson Bayou LA including Sabine Lake...10-15 ft
- Rockefeller Wildlife Refuge to Intracoastal City LA...10-15 ft
Intracoastal City LA to Morgan City including Vermilion Bay...8-12 ft
- Port Bolivar TX to Sea Rim State Park...6-9 ft
- Morgan City LA to Mouth of the Mississippi River...4-7 ft
- Freeport TX to Port Bolivar including Galveston Bay...2-4 ft
- Mouth of the Mississippi River to Ocean Springs MS incl. Lake Borgne...1-3 ft
- Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas...1-3 ft

Through Friday, Laura is expected to produce the following
rainfall totals:
- Across the northwestern Gulf Coast from far southwest Louisiana and the Golden Triangle of Southeast Texas: 8 to 12 inches with isolated totals of 18 inches.
- Across central and the rest of western Louisiana into far eastern Texas: 5 to 10 inches with isolated totals of 15 inches.
- Across much of Arkansas: 3 to 7 inches with isolated totals of 10 inches.
This rainfall will cause widespread flash and urban flooding, small streams and creeks to overflow their banks, and minor to moderate freshwater river flooding.

The next complete advisory will be issued by NHC at 4 a.m. CDT - www.hurricanes.gov

Montgomery County Fire Marshal's Office

A Tropical Storm warning has just been issued for Montgomery County. We can expect tropical storm force winds within 36 hours.

Dependent on the storm’s track, parts of the County may see little rainfall, increasing our risk of wildfires.

A Burn Ban is in effect at this time for all unincorporated areas of Montgomery County.

08/24/2020

Today's update has Laura tracking towards the east side of the Louisiana and Texas boarder. We are still expecting to see heavy rain and strong winds from this storm. But the forecast is constantly changing so we'll continue to keep you updated.

Here are the latest (4 PM CDT) updates on both Tropical Storms Marco and Laura. Please note the changes to the Watches now affecting the local area for Tropical Storm Laura. Stay tuned! #HurricaneSeason2020 #glswx #houwx #txwx

08/23/2020

With Hurricane Marco tracking further east over Louisiana and then weakening over land before turning west towards Texas, we expect to see some rainfall from whats left of that storm.

Tropical Storm Laura, which is predicted to strengthen to a Catagory 1 or 2 Hurricane is now traking further west towards the Texas and Louisiana border. If it continues on the same track we will see heavy rainfall and strong winds as it begins to make landfall. This could definitely cause flooding in our area. Please be prepared and stay updated on the possible outcomes of these storms and how they will impact our area.

A turn toward the northwest is foreast on Wednesday. On the forecast track, the center of Laura will move near or over Cuba tonight and Monday, and move over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico Monday night and Tuesday. Laura is expected to move
