Sugar Land Warns Residents: Plan Now for Hurricanes

The City of Sugar Land wants residents to be Hurricane Ready.

The Atlantic Hurricane season begins on June 1 and extends through Nov. 30. The majority of injuries and death are caused by people remaining in unsafe locations during a storm. Hurricanes could bring high winds and flooding, so you need to protect yourself from both the wind and the water. 

During and after an emergency it is crucial to ensure you are receiving information from legitimate sources. Beware of inaccurate information online during emergencies. The following list of services can help keep you informed before, during and after an emergency. 

*Emergency Notification System
The emergency alert system is a communication service available to all Sugar Land residents to receive emergency alerts and city notifications. Notifications are available via email, text, and/or phone. 

*Flood Warning System
Sign up to receive alerts that report near real-time rainfall and water levels. This service is provided through a partnership with the Harris County Flood Warning System. 

*Intelligent Transportation System (ITS)
The City’s Intelligent Transportation System Website allows residents to view and sign up to receive information about traffic event locations (like traffic hazards, street flooding, etc) throughout the Sugar Land area. 

*CenterPoint Energy
CenterPoint Energy is responsible for restoring electricity and natural gas. Sign up for their power outage alerts. Check out additional preparedness tips and information below.
