Tropical Storm Beta

Help send much needed comfort items and donations to aid in recovery and rebuilding efforts

Tropical Storm Beta and the Gulf Coast

Tropical Storm Beta is a slow moving storm expected to be a long duration rain event. As was the case with Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Laura it is often the long duration rain events combined with storm surge that cause the greatest damage.

About the Storm

Tropical Storm Beta is making its way toward the Gulf Coast at a very slow pace, bringing with it the promise of almost 2 feet of rain in some areas and storm surge that are forcing the evacuations of thousands.
