Saturday brings another chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms to the Brazos Valley. During the afternoon hours, scattered areas of rain and storms could develop in the daytime heat (30%). A line of rain and thunderstorms will be possible between sunset and midnight -- moving in from the north & west. If these storms can reach the area, they could pose a localized flooding & damaging wind threat.
The Brazos Valley is setting up a new system to help residents with disabilities during a disaster.
The Special Needs Registry would include the seven county area that makes up the Brazos Valley.
Each county is trying to get residents who may be homebound or have special needs to register their information.
The service will contact them during a severe storm or other emergency to see if they need any help.
It is the first service of it's kind in the state, and emergency management workers hope it will better serve special needs residents.
If you or someone you know has a disability call your county government or 211 to register.
