Disaster Recovery Information and Resources

AUGUST 31, 2017: The safety of our residents is our utmost concern. As the floodwaters from Hurricane Harvey begin to recede in the coming days, we wanted to provide information to those affected, and the community at-large, of the general risks associated with re-entering disaster and flood areas.

If you are awaiting return to homes in the evacuated areas, or are planning on assisting with clean-up of flooded homes in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, please review the resources available at our Disaster Recovery Information page, and be aware of the dangers present as well as how to protect yourself.

Some general concerns include: displaced wildlife, snakes, and insects (like fire ants); risk of electrical shock from downed power lines or electrical appliances; for those NOT on City water/wastewater systems - compromised water well and septic systems; personal health and safety including necessary protective equipment and potentially vaccinations for working in and around flood water; as well as counseling resources to help deal with the natural stresses of being in a disaster situation.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THERE IS A POSSIBLITY OF MISSING MANHOLE COVERS AND INLET GRATES THROUGHOUT FLOODED AREAS. PLEASE REPORT THESE TO THE CITY AT 281-346-1796 ASAP AND WE WILL ADDRESS.

Fort Bend County is working to establish a website with volunteer and donation information for what will undoubtedly be a longer-term ongoing operation across the county. We will be sure to include this information in our resource page as it becomes available. More information will also be forthcoming regarding filing for assistance from various agencies.
