AUSTIN ---- Gov. Rick Perry has activated the Disaster District Committee (DDC) in Beaumont and placed state and local emergency management assets on alert as Tropical Storm Isaac makes it way towards the Gulf Coast. Current forecasts predict the storm will strengthen to a hurricane and make landfall in southern Louisiana within the next 36 hours. The Beaumont DDC is being activated to meet any immediate requests for assistance from western Louisiana, or address any potential impact to Texas should the storm divert to the west this evening.

"The path of a storm's destruction can be unpredictable, and as we track Tropical Storm Isaac across the Gulf of Mexico, Texas will be prepared to respond anywhere the storm makes landfall," Gov. Perry said. "With the effects of hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Ike still fresh on the minds of communities near the projected path of the storm, Texas will rely on our proactive approach to protecting life and property, and stands ready to support our neighbors in Louisiana with any assistance they may need."

State agencies activated at the Beaumont DDC include the Texas Division of Emergency Management, DPS, Department of State Health Services, Texas Forest Service, Department of Aging and Disability Services, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and Texas Department of Transportation. Texas Task Force-1 and the Texas Military Forces remain on standby for rapid deployment anywhere along the Gulf Coast.

The State Operations Center (SOC) in Austin continues to monitor the progress of Tropical Storm Isaac and has been working with FEMA and the Louisiana Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness to meet any unmet needs the state may have.

As the seven year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina approaches, it is imperative for coastal residents to be mindful of the dangers these storms present and have a plan to protect their families and property should weather conditions worsen in their area.
