Disaster Declaration Issued for Brazos County

Brazos County Judge Randy Sims signed an emergency declaration Friday, in light of Gustav heading toward the Louisiana coast.

Sims tells News 3 that evacuees are expected to head to Brazos County before and after the storm makes landfall.

The Emergency Operations Center is on standby as well as all local non-profit agencies.

Thursday Governor Rick Perry suspended plans to attend the Republican National Convention and issued a disaster declaration for 61 counties, including Brazos County, in case Gustav hits Texas.

Some coastal residents are already gassing up and stocking up on water and supplies.
