Based upon the current projections from the National Weather Service and Fort Bend County officials, the Brazos River is expected to crest on late Tuesday or early Wednesday in Richmond at approximately 59 feet (Gauge height) and to remain elevated until at least Friday. The District’s engineer prepared the map below of projected flooding in the neighborhood (indicated by the areas shaded in blue) if the Brazos River crests at 59 feet as projected. The map is based on available rough elevation data that does not include information about the elevation of homes and other structures on individual residential lots.
Based on the available information, the District anticipates that there will be widespread street flooding in the neighborhood. It is also possible that there may be some flooding to some structures. This flooding is expected to last through at least Friday and potentially longer. During this time, high water likely will prevent travel in and out of the neighborhood and may restrict travel in and out of individual homes. Please make preparations today for this extended flooding event.
