A tropical storm watch has been issued for a large swath
of the Texas Gulf Coast as Tropical Storm Harvey develops into a
Storm Watch - sustained
winds of 39 to 73 mph are possible in the specified coastal area
within 48 hours. (Now
is the time to begin making preparations for life and property.
Review your hurricane checklist and secure any necessary supplies
to weather the storm).
Now is the time to start preparing for the heavy amounts of
rainfall expected in Houston beginning Friday afternoon.
Currently, the forecast is predicting 100% chance of rain from
Friday to Sunday.
Over the past two years it has become evident that flooding
is a major issue in many parts of Houston. Be conscious of not
only your primary locations, but any job sites and temporary storage
locations where you may have inventory or equipment stored.
Most especially if you are in a flood prone area, avoid
taking any chances by relocating as much inventory and equipment
to higher ground as possible.
Also, don't postpone personal preparedness. With
high winds and rain comes the potential for power outages. Click

Should you have any questions, please contact a
member of your BCH Service Team for assistance.
