Inclement weather

Inclement weather No. 1:  Weather conditions are improving

Texas Children’s leadership and the Department of Emergency Management are closely monitoring the weather as the Greater Houston area experienced heavy rainfall today.

More than six inches of rain fell across the Houston area. Rainfall levels are gradually subsiding, however street-level flooding and slick roads still remain a concern.

We urge employees to exercise caution when navigating roadways and avoid flooded areas as you head home or make your way into work.  Please plan for additional travel time and be prepared to identify alternate routes in case roadways are flooded.

For more information, including the latest weather, traffic and road conditions, go to the Emergency Management Connect site and the National Weather Service website. You can also go to the Houston TranStar website to get the latest traffic reports on road conditions.

Please continue to be safe in this weather, and reach out to your leaders with regard to one-to-one hand offs and staffing coordination measures.
