    How exactly is weather like Alex related to police news in Montgomery County? I would understand how a storm posing immediate harm to the area would affect local law enforcement, but there is nothing local about this news. If one wanted to peruse weather news one could surf to weather.com. I read montgomerycountypolicereporter.com to get local law enforcement news.

      Many people have friends and family in south Texas. If you don’t want to read it skip over the story. I have had many comments on the Facebook end about how they appreciate the coverage.
