Update as of 9/7 @ 9 AM

UPDATE: Unfortunately, the last 24 hours has forced the National Guard to focus on preparations in Florida as Hurricane Irma is now imposing a serious threat to that state. Forces will remain in TX, but will be focused on areas that are in much greater need of assistance. We are thankful that the City of Katy – while we still have a lot of recovery efforts ahead – is well ahead of most surrounding areas. We are blessed with such a strong community of volunteers, organizations, churches and neighbors – these people will continue to help our City. We are so thankful for everyone who did and will continue to aid in our recovery. Our thoughts and prayers are with surrounding areas still under water, with Florida as they prepare for what could be an extremely destructive hurricane, and those brave people who are already in route to help those in future need.
