Our message continues to be, if you live along the Trinity River, you know the river has been rising for two weeks and everyone should know it will continue to rise and stay in flood stage for many days. If you choose to stay you could be surrounded by water for an extended period of time. Should you decide to go, please do so in the daylight hours.
This is not a flash flood situation like we see in other areas, you know the water is rising, you have had time to decide what to do, and now is the time to
make a smart decision concerning the safety of yourself and your family.
A Red Cross shelter has opened at the Liberty County Shelter Building, 318 San Jacinto Street, in Liberty. We recommend that residents find a friend or family member to stay with if you evacuate, but if you have no place to go the Red Cross Shelter will be available.
Again, regardless of what you do, please do it during daylight hours.
Please call our office at 936-334-3219 if any you have questions, call 911 if you have an emergency.
