So far our office has received 13 reports of water in homes located in the Trinity River flood plain. Residents that wish to report flooding in their homes are ask to call our office at 936-334-3219.
FEMA has not declared our area eligible for federal assistance as we are still working to assess damages and with most subdivisions still cut off by flood waters, it will take some time to determine if Liberty County has suffered enough damage to receive federal aid. Residents can still pre-register with FEMA by calling 1-800-621-3362. FEMA will contact those that register IF Liberty County is included in the presidential disaster proclamation.
Liberty County Commissioners are working to identify damaged infrastructure,such as roads and bridges. Those damage estimates will be collected once the water recedes and allows crews to conduct inspections in the affected areas.
Residents needing a shelter can take refuge at the Red Cross shelter located at 318 San Jacinto Street in Liberty. Our Red Cross partners are working very hard to assist local residents and we applaud them for their hard work and dedication.
Remember, call 911 if you have an emergency, call 936-336-4500 ext 0 if you need assistance evacuating your neighborhood, and remember to make all planned moves during daylight hours. Our first responders would certainly appreciate it, working around a flooded river is very dangerous.
