At 10 a.m. CDT, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) downgraded Tropical Storm Beta to a tropical depression. The NHC also cancelled the tropical storm and storm surge warnings that were in effect. However, flash flood warnings remain in effect for large parts of the seven-county Houston region, especially the southern part. A flash flood watch remains in effect for the entire region.
Flash Flood Warnings and Watches
A flash flood warning means that flooding is in progress. A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to Flash Flooding.
Lake Conroe/Lake Houston Within Banks
Neither Lake Conroe, nor Lake Houston have yet been adversely affected by Beta.
The level of Lake Conroe stands at 199.63 feet. Normal conservation pool equals 201.
According to the Coastal Water Authority, Lake Houston is at:
|Lake Level||41.41 ft.|
|Normal Pool||42.4 ft.|
USGS shows that even though the lake has received about 1.75 inches of rainfall to date…
…the lake level has been dropping, no doubt due to a preemptive release.
