Posted 07-15-2021- As you are aware there was an industrial accident at the Margaritaville Resort this afternoon. Conroe PD initiated an investigation into the accident that caused the death of one of the workers. The Montgomery County Forensic Center was also on scene, as well as Judge Wayne Mack. Safety officials with Entergy were also in the beginning stages of an investigation, as the workers were contractors from another company. Margaritaville is still without power and has now closed the resort for the safety of the guests, and until a thorough investigation can be conducted by safety crews and investigators. Margaritaville released a short statement which is attached. Any further questions concerning the closing of the resort can be forwarded to the contacts listed on this page. Notification is still being made. Chief Jeff Christy would like to send his condolences to the family of those affected by this tragedy.
