2016 Hurricane Season Information for Bay Area Residents
Posted In: Alvin News | Clear Lake News | Clear Lake Shores News | Cypress Fairbanks | Dickinson News | El Lago News | Friendswood News | Galveston News | General News | Hitchcock News | Houston News | Kemah News | League City News | Nassau Bay News | Pearland News | San Leon News | Santa Fe News | Seabrook News | Taylor Lake Village News | Texas City News | Webster News Posted by Pam Moore on 06/13/2016


The Harris and Galveston County Offices of Emergency Management and Clear Channel Outdoor joined together to raise awareness of the coming hurricane season. The billboards were set to countdown to June 1st, which is the (calendar) start of hurricane season. The countdown ‘clock’ and website information was located on six billboards provided by Clear Channel Outdoor at no cost to the counties.

Hurricanes can be a major threat to the Houston-Galveston region when tropical storms form in the Gulf of Mexico. The 2016 Hurricane Season began early in January with Hurricane Alex, and the second storm formed in late May, Tropical Storm Bonnie which came onshore along the South Carolina coast. The list of names for the 2016 Hurricane Season is shown below.

The Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) works closely with the State and local jurisdictions to aid in planning for the hurricane season and offers resources for residents. A page of Preparedness Resources can be found on the Council’s website. Residents can locate their local city office of emergency management on this page to keep up-to-date with their city’s announcements.

If a hurricane threat should mandate a need to evacuate, the 2016 evacuation map for Brazoria, Chambers, Galveston, Harris and Matagorda can be found on H-GAC website. Hurricane tracking charts are available for free distribution from local newspapers, local television stations and online. There are also apps available for cell phones for residents to track storms and also to receive storm updates from the National Hurricane Center, which is a division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Weather Service (NWS).

Hurricane season runs from June 1st through November 30th. New and old Bay Area residents should always be aware and prepared for the possibility of a threat from a tropical storm/hurricane; or, simply said in a quote from Stephen King:

"There's no harm in hoping for the best as long as you're prepared for the worst."
— Stephen King, Different Seasons

Public Meetings Scheduled about Gulf Freeway Design Changes “And the Beat Goes On”
Posted In: Alvin News | Clear Lake News | Clear Lake Shores News | Cypress Fairbanks | Dickinson News | El Lago News | Friendswood News | Galveston News | General News | Hitchcock News | Houston News | Kemah News | League City News | Nassau Bay News | Pearland News | San Leon News | Santa Fe News | Seabrook News | Taylor Lake Village News | Texas City News | Webster News Posted by Pam Moore on 10/05/2015


Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) is the regional organization through which local governments consider issues and cooperate in solving area wide problems. H-GAC's mission is to serve as the instrument of local government cooperation, promoting the region's orderly development and the safety and welfare of its citizens.

Members of the Houston-Galveston Area Council Transportation Policy Council - the board that oversees regional transportation planning and federal and state funding for Houston-area projects - is scheduled to approve its 2016-18 spending plan. The plan covers $239.4 million for I-45 over the next three years, with $140.4 million of that directed to segments expected to break ground by late 2016.

The Gulf Freeway widening project has been broken down into three segments:
  1. Nasa Rd 1 to Galveston County line; Widen to five lanes in each direction, with three-lane frontage roads, and two HOV lanes;
  2. Harris County line to FM 518; Widen to five lanes in each direction; with two- or three-lane frontage roads and two HOV lanes;
  3. FM 518 to FM 517; widen to four lanes in each direction with two-lane frontage roads.
  4. Coming Later; Another 18.4 miles of I-45 will be widened to four lanes in each direction.
Texas Department of Transportation will hold two public meetings to discuss the design changes for the Galveston Bay Area:
  1. Topic: Widening Nasa Rd 1 By-pass to south of FM 518. October 6, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm; Creekside Intermediate School, 4320 West Main St., League City.
  2. Topic: Widening south of FM 518 to FM 1764. October 20, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm; Victory Lakes Intermediate School, 2880 West Walker, League City.
New and old residents have seen many changes to the Gulf Freeway, which officially opened in 1952. “And the beat goes on” for changes that are designed to help with traffic congestion as the population in the area continues to grow.
