predicted at Port O'Conner, Texas, about 35 miles south of the South     
Texas Project, at 6 to 8 p.m. (CDT) on Tuesday, July 15.                 

Regional Action:

Region IV has dispatched two inspectors to provide site coverage during  
the approach and passage of the storm.  Region IV will continue to       
monitor the storm and maintain readiness to respond as necessary.
