The National Weather Service is predicting south east Texas will be entering a prolonged period of cold weather starting this weekend and continuing into next week. The City encourages residents to begin preparations to protect the “Four P’s”: people, pets, pipes, and plants.


• Keep warm, stay inside if possible.

• If you need to go out, dress in layers and wear hats, gloves and an appropriate coat.

• Avoid overexertion, as cold weather puts added strain on your body.


• Bring pets inside, and move other animals or livestock to sheltered areas.

• Keep adequate food and water available.

• Disconnect outdoor hoses, drain and store in protected area.

• Wrap exposed faucets and pipes – including those outside the house or in unheated crawl spaces, attics, garages and other areas.


• Bring potted plants inside or store in garage near interior wall to provide extra warmth and protection from wind.

• For cold-sensitive outdoor plants, put down extra mulch and consider covering with a cloth fabric of some kind to shield the plants from wind and frost.
