Experts say this is a good reminder for all of us to get flood insurance before hurricane season starts. Just because you don’t live on a flood plain doesn’t mean you’re not eligible for it. There is a 30-day waiting period for it to kick in, and hurricane season officially starts June 1st.

Sunday brought more rain, leading to more high water and flooding risks. KHOU has some great info about what’s already happened, things to look for including road closures, and also resources if you or someone you know is in need. One highlight is that United Way’s 2-1-1 is manned 24/7 and is there if you need assistance because of flooding. We also want you to know that we are here to pray. Text PRAY to 893893 and you can share your prayer so that the KSBJ community will pray in the moment for you. We know we have a God that is WITH us in the storm!
