Fort Bend County residents should be ready for possible flash flooding throughout the night as a tropical storm has hit the Gulf Coast and is approaching the area.

Tropical Storm Imelda formed off the coast of Brazoria County, and the storm moved inland later Tuesday evening.

The rains in Fort Bend County have been light, but the rains are expected to pick up on Tuesday night and continue through Wednesday morning.

The National Weather Service said that rains in the area would be between one to three inches by Wednesday morning, with some isolated areas receiving four to six inches.

Fort Bend County has been in a Flash Flood Watch for most of Tuesday, but the weather could get worse as the night progresses.

The Fort Bend County Office of Emergency Management is asking all residents to pay attention to local news and stay informed throughout the night.
