If you live in the above areas and have water in your home, you are being asked to evacuate your home as soon as possible. Starting at 7 a.m. TODAY (Sunday, Sept. 3), CenterPoint employees began going door-to-door assessing homes for flooding. Homes with water in them will then have the power turned off.
It is important to note: All CenterPoint employees will be accompanied by a first responder (law enforcement or fire).
If you do NOT have flooding in your home, you will be allowed to return and/or remain. Authorities ask for the public’s patience as they work to ensure residents only return to homes that are perceived as being safe.
Individuals needing to go to a shelter should go to NRG Park.
If you are in the mandatory evacuation area and need assistance, or if you have suspicions about the legitimacy of a CenterPoint employee, the City of Houston urges you to call 911.
