FloodWarn Seminar

Do you want to find out more about flood risks and flood insurance? Would you like to learn more about how flood forecasts and warnings are formulated? Do you want to understand our watershed better?

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), in its effort to improve public education surrounding flooding, has developed a FloodWarn Seminar to improve residents’ education. Joining NOAA will be representatives from the National Weather Service (NWS), Fort Bend County Drainage, Harris County Flood Control, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

The event will cover a wide range of topics, including home ownership issues that address risk and flood insurance. Participants will also discuss the forecasts and warnings that come from the NWS, and they will explain how water flows through our watershed.

This event is free and open to the public.
