UTMB prepares for Hurricane Harvey

UTMB Health went into emergency operations mode at 7 a.m., Friday, Aug. 25, in response to Hurricane Harvey’s approach to the Texas coast.  Galveston and Brazoria counties are included in the National Weather Service’s tropical storm and storm surge warning areas with torrential amounts of rain possible along the coast over the next three to five days and a possible storm surge of 3 feet to 6 feet in Galveston and with much higher storm surges closer to the center of the storm.

This site will be formally activated if there are disruptions to UTMB’s primary communication channels.
