Strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible, across the Brazos Valley, this afternoon and evening. Winds in excess of 40-60mph are the main concern, within the strongest activity. An isolated, brief tornado threat cannot be ruled out. Heavy rainfall between 1" and 3" has the potential to cause localized flash flooding in a few locations.
As part of National Public Health Week, the A&M School of Rural Public Health is hosting a variety of programs throughout the week highlighting recent health projects.
During Monday's event, the USA Center for Rural Public Health Preparedness was showcased. The center is one of 27 nationwide, and is the first in the nation to act as a hub for all other rural centers.
"It's really an opportunity to take Texas A&M way beyond the state of Texas, and we're very excited about that," said Barbara Quiram of the School of Rural Health.
Posters and other information were available for visitors to learn more about the center and its work.
