That's where newly appointed Galveston County Emergency Management Coordinator Garret Foskit was managing his first tropical storm system response.
"This was a real good live drill for us," Foskit said.
"We have to always be ready, because, really, no matter how good the technology and forecasting, we never know how these things turn out."
Bill was Foskit's first tropical event since being named the county's full-time emergency management coordinator in early June.

Nordstrand workers still were vacuuming the oil at 6 p.m. and will investigate the cause of the system malfunction today, Foskit said.
Nordstrand employees told officials the company lost power a couple days ago but didn't know if it was a factor in the tanks' overflow, Foskit
