****************************************************
Curfews: We have reported Liberty and Chambers Counties have instituted curfews until further notice as have local cities. Those curfew periods are from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily for both counties as well as for the cities of Liberty, Dayton, Hardin and Daisetta. The city of Cleveland also has a curfew until further notice. It starts an hour earlier than the other cities. Cleveland’s curfew is from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.
****************************************************
Rumors: As if the flooding and devastation from Hurricane Harvey in Southeast Texas wasn’t dire enough, some people still keep generating rumors that the situation is even worse. The truth is Liberty city staff – like their counterparts in other cities - have been working grueling hours to keep drainage systems working during this flood event. Still, the rumor has persisted that the city of Liberty’s levee is in danger of failing. Not true, not even close – that according to Liberty City Manager Gary Broz. He says the levee is not in danger, has not suffered any flood related damage and is working fine. If you have questions, go to a reliable information source. You can call the city of Liberty at 936-336-3684.
****************************************************
Hartel Building: There has been some confusion among many concerning the use of the Hartel Community Center in Liberty as a shelter during emergencies. Liberty County Emergency Management Coordinator Tom Branch said that facility is designated for use during any declared disaster as a facility to house first-responders, not to house those who are displaced by the storm. Mr. Branch said that is included in the county’s published emergency plan.
****************************************************
School Closings: All 10 school districts in Liberty and Chambers counties have now canceled classes for the remainder of this week. Now, students are scheduled to return to school next Tuesday, September 5. Those school districts have also canceled student activities, including football and volleyball games, until next Tuesday. School officials at all of the districts in Liberty and Chambers counties say they will continue to monitor weather conditions and flooding, and will make additional decisions on closings as warranted for the safety of students and district employees.
****************************************************
Chambers County: As of yesterday morning, Chambers County Public Information Officer Ryan Holzaepfel reports more than 600 people had been rescued by first-responders from various agencies. Mr. Holzaepfel said if you are in an emergency situation, call 9-1-1. For those seeking information, the Chambers County Office of Emergency Management can be reached by phone at 409-267-2445. That is for non-emergencies. Again, if it is an emergency situation, dial 9-1-1.
