In a statement from the Office of Emergency Management, Houston officials ask that you please avoid making contact of ALL flood waters for your own safety;
Life threatening conditions persist across Harris County due to continued flooding in neighborhoods and on some roadways. Flood water is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. Residents are STRONGLY ADVISED to STAY OUT OF FLOOD WATERS!
What You Should Do:
Turn Around, Don’t Drown! ® Avoid walking or driving through flood waters.
Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down, and 2 feet of water can sweep your vehicle away.
DO NOT allow children to play or swim in flood water. Waters may conceal dangerous objects as well as contain hazardous chemicals, reptiles, snakes, insects and other critters.
After a flood,
If you have left your home, return only when it is safe.
Be aware of areas where floodwaters have receded and watch out for debris. Floodwaters often erode roads and walkways.
Do not attempt to drive through areas that are still flooded.
Avoid standing water as it may be electrically charged from underground or downed power lines.
Photograph damage to your property for insurance purposes.
In concerns of property damage, the OEM advises:
While Governor Abbott has issued a State Disaster Declaration, the President has not yet issued a Presidential Declaration of Disaster. No aid will be available unless or until this is done. If a Presidential Disaster Declaration is received, aid will be through the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Small Business Administration. Full details will be released as information becomes available.
