Storm Surge Markers

In 2009, La Porte Office of Emergency Management (OEM) implemented a storm surge education initiative. Yellow, orange, and red markings have been placed on road sign posts around the city to indicate the potential levels of 15 foot, 17 foot and 19 foot storm surges, respectively. This initiative is another tool provided by La Porte OEM to help residents and local business owners make informed decisions about their safety, in the event that a hurricane threatens our area.
