CLARIFICATION (8/24/2017 - 4:30 P.M.): At this time, the City has not issued any evacuation orders for low-lying areas. If/when Red Bird Lane has to be closed by public safety officials due to high water, there will be no access in or out of the neighborhood for residents or public safety officers. Residents should prepare accordingly, based on whether they are able to remain in their homes for a multiple day period potentially without electricity, water, public safety access, etc.
The City of Fulshear is actively monitoring Tropical Storm Harvey in conjunction with county and state emergency management officials. We are also increasing our readiness level in preparation. At this time, the National Hurricane Center is forecasting Harvey to become a hurricane before it makes landfall.
Harvey is expected to bring prolonged heavy rainfall and potentially hurricane force winds here. Please be sure to monitor the storm as it is changing rapidly.
The City will not be able to provide alternate routes of travel for residents along Bois D Arc and Red Bird lanes. Residents should plan accordingly now, especially given the forecast for prolonged rainfall. Anyone needing assistance should call 211.
Once the Emergency Operation Center is activated here, we will provide updates through our web page and social media (City, Police Department.)
Please note: all emergency services will cease once winds reach Tropical Storm levels of 39 MPH.
