AUSTIN — Today Land Commissioner George P. Bush urged Texans to take heed of severe weather warnings, know their risk and be prepared. The Texas General Land Office (GLO) is continuing to monitor several potential weather formations threatening the U.S., including a tropical disturbance over the Gulf of Mexico with a 70 percent chance of cyclone formation in the next 48 hours. The National Hurricane Center predicts heavy rainfall and gusty winds across Texas on Thursday and Friday.

"Signing up for alerts, being prepared and remaining vigilant is critical for Texans' safety as natural disasters face our great state," Commissioner Bush said. "While no one can control the weather, everyone can take steps to know their risk, plan for emergencies, heed warnings from local officials and protect their families. It's never too early to begin preparation, and I urge all Texans to remain vigilant as storms approach the coast."
