The Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management is currently monitoring the flooding situation throughout the County. Rain total amounts have ranged from 6-10” over the last 3 days.

More rain is forecast to come into the Southeast Texas area this evening, but certainty of location and rain amounts to be expected is low at this time.

As of 6:00 PM, on May 13, 2015, the Montgomery County Emergency Operations Center was activated.

The National Weather Service River Forecast Center in collaboration with the USGS is predicting significant river flooding for some areas within Montgomery County.

The West Fork of the San Jacinto near Porter is currently at Moderate flood stage at 29.09 feet. The West Fork near Porter is forecast to crest at 31.3 feet on Thursday, 5/14/15, sometime in the morning. This will bring the level into major flood stage.

The West Fork of the San Jacinto near Conroe in the River Plantation area is currently at 116.05 feet and minor flood stage begins at 115.8 feet. The river is forecast to crest around 116.3 feet on Wednesday evening.

Persons with interests along these areas should keep alert, be prepared for possible evacuation with very short notice, and take all precautions to protect their lives and property. A supply list for flood evacuation kits can be found on our website at Flood waters can be extremely dangerous and deadly. Flooded rivers and creeks move very quickly and can sweep a vehicle off the road with less than 1 foot of water.

Generally, street flooding is still a concern as more rain comes into the area and water runs off into creeks and streams. An updated list and map of road closures is available on our website
