Update: September 23
Sugar Land is standing down its tropical storm emergency operations as the remains of Beta have moved to the east of our region. The threat to our city is gone. Despite heavy rainfall during the course of the event, the city’s drainage infrastructure performed as designed, and city crews from Public Works, Fire-EMS, Police, Engineering and many more worked around the clock to keep Sugar Land safe. Sugar Land weathered the same heavy rain bands that affected other areas such as southwest Houston, Friendswood and Pearland. Much of the city remained clear and passable with just a few isolated incidents of street flooding.
Despite a return to normal, we should all remain prepared because hurricane season continues through November. Remember to rely on authoritative sources of weather information such as the National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center.
