Heavy rainfall and potential flooding is the primary concern of the current weather system in the area. Nueces County residents in low lying areas subject to flooding should take precautions to plan for such rainfall and flooding.

Area residents should be cautious of potential rural and urban flooding and hazardous driving conditions. Above normal tides on area beaches will cause extremely dangerous rip currents. Beachgoers should check conditions prior to going to area beaches.

 Area residents are asked to take necessary precautions to protect lives and secure property. Nueces County will continue to monitor weather conditions and will make operational decisions to protect life and preserve property.
