The S.T.A.N -- SOUTHEAST TEXAS ALERTING NETWORK

Another thing you should do now is register for alerts with “The STAN”. They will send out warnings of current conditions or ways to protect yourself. Register here.

SOUTHEAST TEXAS REGIONAL ALERTING & INFORMATION NETWORK  (R.A.I.N.)

Check for rainfall, river and bayou levels and sign up for alerts that will keep you aware of when the water rises near you.

SETexasRain.org displays rainfall, streamflow, and stream and reservoir levels in major streams, bayous, and reservoirs in Southeast Texas. The system relies on a network of river and reservoir gaging stations throughout the five-county area of Hardin, Jasper, Jefferson, Newton, and Orange Counties as well as the Sabine and Neches River Basins in the Southeast Texas Region.

ROAD CLOSURES AND DRIVING INFORMATION

The Texas Department of Transportation’s DriveTexas.org is a great resource for finding out which roads are open.
