Tropical Storm Harvey has now been dubbed a Category 1 hurricane per the National Hurricane Center. The whole Coastal Bend is on high alert to grab as many supplies as possible for whatever disaster may occur. Each person of the household will need to make sure they have a disaster supplies kit ready at home in case they are unable to leave for any reason due to the weather.
The National Hurricane Center says having a basic disaster supplies bag could save your life:
-Battery powered radio
-Cell phone chargers & batteries
-First Aid kit
Along with these items it is imperative to be stocked up on water and food for the next few days.
The City will have sand available this morning at the City Fuel Station off of Civitan and Ayers. It will be 20 bags per household and there will be bags and shovels available free of charge.
