Greater Houston is bracing for the impending landfall of a developing tropical disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico, which could lead to heavy rains causing more flooding in the area.

While it’s not yet technically a tropical storm, that doesn’t lessen the flooding threat, as anywhere from a few inches to more than a foot of rain may fall — on already saturated ground — in the next 12 to 24 hours. The Harris County Regional Joint Information Center has been activated. Officials are encouraging Houstonians to prepare for the possibility of storms and flooding similar to what we experienced over Memorial Day weekend. But how much rain we really get, how fast it falls, and just where and when is not yet certain.

We have the latest on this developing story and emergency preparations in Greater Houston.
