Galveston County has the unique honor of being the only emergency management office in the nation to be collocated with the National Weather Service. This allows us to give our citizens accurate and timely information. Historically, August has been the most active time for hurricane season here in the Gulf. If you have not already, now is the time to prepare.
Make a plan, build a kit, and stay informed. Check back here at GCOEM.org for updates regularly, and sign up for the alerts in your area by clicking here. Follow us on twitter @galvcountyoem or Facebook and the National Weather Service @NWSHouston.
