Harris County Alert

What is the Danger?

Additional rainfall today means there is flooding on roadways, in homes, and on side streets.

What You Need to Know:

The most important thing residents can do is STAY OUT OF THE WATER. Flood waters can contain hazardous chemicals, gasoline, dangerous critters, and other objects that can injure or kill. THE DANGER OF DEATH FROM DROWNING IS VERY REAL!

Motorists should not DO NOT DRIVE AROUND BARRICADES or DO NOT DRIVE INTO FLOOD WATERS. Just two feet of water can carry a car off the road. At least one of those killed this week, drove around a police barricade and drowned in their vehicle.

At this time, relief benefits from the Federal Emergency Management Agency are not available. A Presidential Declaration of Disaster has not been issued. Harris County officials are working closely with State of Texas officials to help complete federal disaster assistance requirements. Please do not attempt to apply for federal relief benefits at this time.

Residents in need of information and resources related to the recent flooding can call 2-1-1 Texas/United Way HELPLINE.  United Way's trained HELPLINE specialists are answering calls 24/7 to provide information and referrals to storm-related resources drawn from our comprehensive database of social services. 

If you need assistance, it is available through one local call:  2-1-1 Texas/United Way HELPLINE.

Please report flooding in your home to: http://www.readyharris.org/go/survey/1829/11787/.
