At this time, Brazos County does not appear to be in significant danger from the effects of the storm. Forecasts show we may get some thunderstorms, perhaps 1 inch of rainfall and some gusty winds, but the main threats are to the east of us.

Still, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on the latest weather reports and be aware as this powerful storm hits the gulf coast.
