Important Info Hurricane Harvey

Our hearts and prayers go out to our beautiful city and all surrounding areas that have been impacted by #hurricaneharvey. Please see information below for important information, contact numbers and shelters in the area. 

Recommended Actions from FEMA.gov

This is still a dangerous storm

Residents and visitors in areas potentially affected by the severe weather should listen to local officials, and continue to monitor local radio or TV stations for updated emergency information. 

Turn around, don’t drown 

Don’t drive on flooded roadways.

 

Only call 911 if you have an immediate need for medical attention or evacuation assistance

If you can’t get through to 911 on first try, keep calling. Another option is to place a call to one of five numbers for the Houston Command Center of the United States Coast Guard. The numbers are: 281-464-4851, 281-464-4852, 281-464-4853, 281-464-4854, 282-464-4855

If you are in a high rise building and need to shelter in place

Go to the first or second floor hallways or interior rooms. You want to stay on floors above floodwater or storm surge, but do not go to the highest floors due to wind impacts.

If you are under a tornado warning

Seek shelter immediately in the center of a small interior room (closet, interior hallway) on the lowest level of a sturdy building. Put as many walls as possible between you and the outside.
