Clear Lake Shores, TX - January, 9, 2020 - Severe weather risk has been expanded west to include most of SE Texas. Threats of tornadoes, damaging straight line winds and hail will be possible. Night time severe weather is more dangerous simply because you cannot visually see it coming. Storms will also be moving very fast so you may not have as much time to take action as you may think.

This is a good time to make sure that you and your family stay weather aware. Please plan to have multiple ways to receive weather information.
