ALG Connect Weather Alert: Tropical Storm Beta

Tropical Storm Beta Nearing Texas Coast With Threats of Flooding Rain, Storm Surge and Gusty Winds

Tropical Storm Beta is nearing the northwest Gulf Coast and poses threats of flooding rainfall, storm surge and gusty winds to parts of Texas and Louisiana into midweek. A tropical storm warning is in effect from Port Aransas, Texas, to Morgan City, Louisiana, including Houston and Victoria, Texas, and Cameron, Louisiana. Tropical storm conditions (winds 39 mph or greater) will spread across southwestern Louisiana and coastal Texas through Monday.


Beta is centered just over 100 miles south-southwest of Galveston, Texas, and is moving westward at over 5 mph. A storm surge between 3 to 4 feet has been measured early Monday morning at several tidal gauges on the upper Texas coast, including around Galveston Bay. The gauges indicated that this amount of water rise has resulted in major coastal flooding in some areas. Beta is forecast to track steadily to the west through Monday night toward the middle Texas coastline. Flash flood watches have been issued by the National Weather Service from the middle Texas coast to southern Louisiana, including Houston, Lake Charles and New Orleans.
