The Harris County Flood Control District's Flood Warning System measures rainfall amounts and monitors water levels in bayous and major streams on a real-time basis to inform you of dangerous weather conditions. The system relies on 187 gage stations strategically placed throughout Harris County bayous and tributaries. The stations contain sensors that transmit valuable data during times of heavy rainfall and during tropical storms and hurricanes. Some gages also measure wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, air temperature, road temperature and humidity.
Two real-time gages are located in Deer Park.
1. Patrick's Bayou @ East 8th Street
2. Boggy Bayou @ San Augustine
