HOUSTON (CBS Houston) In response to the severe weather impacting Houston, the City of Houston’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) will partially activate the City’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Tuesday.

“Personnel from OEM, Houston Police Department, Houston Fire Department, and Public Works & Engineering will be at the EOC throughout the night and as long as needed tomorrow,” added officials with the Office Of Emergency Management.

Houston’s EOC is the central location for emergency response coordination for the City of Houston. Houston residents are urged to pay attention to local media weather reports, National Weather Service alerts and warnings. They are also strongly urged to follow all official sources of information and connect with public offices on social media sites.

“Houston residents may also sign up for AlertHouston emergency alerts from the Office of Emergency Management by visiting alert.houstonoem.net,” added the Office Of Emergency Management.

Houston Residents can call 311 or visit Houston311.org to report street flooding, residential or business flooding, and debris or trees in the roadway
