There is a serious flood/flash flood risk along the Coastal Plains of Texas through at least tomorrow. Double-digit rainfall totals will be possible - and some of that could fall in a matter of hours. Stay away from high water... and stay weather aware, Texas!!! #TXwx

🔥 Ensure your grill is always kept clean of excess grease to prevent flare-ups!

🔥 Place your grill in an open space away from tall or dry grass, shrubs, woodpiles or other flammable materials.

🔥 Avoid placing your grill underneath a tree or on a wooden patio deck.
