A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH is in effect for Austin, Burleson, Lee, and Washington Counties until 10am, and Montgomery & Waller Counties until 1pm. Damaging winds in excess of 60mph is the main concern.
When the Grimes County crime lab opened more than four years ago, authorities were able to keep cases within the county. But a recent employee shortage forces them to send some cases to the DPS crime lab in Dallas.

The Brazos Valley Council of Governments has requested a $200,000 grant from Governor Rick Perry that would turn the crime lab into a regional center that would serve seven area counties.
