Hurricane Forecast Revised: Hurricane season got under way this past Thursday, and forecasters are now predicting an average probability of a major hurricane making landfall in the United States this year. That likelihood of a storm is up slightly from pre-season forecasts. The revised data from Colorado State University now predicts 14 named storms with six reaching hurricane force. They still expect two of those storms will reach major status with sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour. So, what about predictions for our area? These same experts now predict the Gulf Coast - from the Florida Panhandle westward to Brownsville – has a 32 percent chance of being struck by a major hurricane. The 50-year average is 30 percent.

Electrical Upgrades: Last year, the City of Liberty embarked on a major project to upgrade the city’s electrical distribution system. That $4 million project was mostly funded by revenue from what is known as the Cambridge Project. Proceeds from the Sam Rayburn Municipal Agency’s interstate electrical power wholesaling plan has meant some $15 million in income to date for Liberty and the SRMPA partner cities of Jasper and Livingston. Liberty’s latest distribution from the Cambridge Project was for $1.5 million during May. Liberty City Manager Gary Broz said the long list of electrical system upgrades throughout the city is about 50 percent complete.
CASA Receives Grant: Court Appointed Special Advocates or CASA of Liberty and Chambers Counties has received a $15,200 donation to help increase awareness of its mission to provide a volunteer advocate for every child in foster care in the two counties. That generous gift is from the Texas Bar Foundation. President of the Liberty County Bar Association is Farrah Harper. CASA of Liberty and Chambers Counties is led by Executive Director Debbie Dugger.
