A TORNADO WATCH has been issued for Austin and Waller counties until 2am.

Throughout Sunday, Brazos County residents were calling the county's 911 dispatch for information on river levels.
Dispatchers have been answering calls and monitoring current river measurement reports and weather reports. As of yet, those reports have not warranted the activation of the Brazos County Emergency Operations Center.
Emergency Management Coordinator Chuck Frazier said evacuations are not anticipated, but anyone near the Brazos River needs to stay alert to be able to act fast.
"If you've got something that's threatened, you know, when the river gets to those levels, now is the time to do something about it," Frazier said.
Frazier said he will continue to monitor river reports throughout Sunday night and Monday.
