****************************************************
Highway 90: The extraordinary flood event caused by Hurricane Harvey has resulted in flood water covering some of the westbound side of U. S. 90 in the river bottom between Liberty and Dayton. The westbound side of 90 was closed yesterday and is expected to remain closed until water recedes. In the meantime, the highway department has converted the eastbound side of 90 in the river bottom to one lane east and one lane west. Cones and barricades are in place to direct motorists to the correct lanes for travel east or west, but extra caution is urged until the westbound side of U. S. 90 is reopened.

FLNB Waives Fees: First Liberty National Bank is offering a helping hand to their customers as the effort to recover from the massive flooding across Southeast Texas begins in earnest. First Liberty National Bank President Kelly Stretcher issued a statement Wednesday that the bank – oldest in Liberty County - would be waiving late fees on loan payments and insufficient fund fees for their customers in the wake of the storm. Mr. Stretcher said they simply want to help and feel this can make a difference for those who are coping with this catastrophic situation.
****************************************************
Liberty: We have reported the ongoing efforts by city of Liberty crews working with the city’s Water Control and Improvement District to fight the steadily rising floodwaters brought on by Hurricane Harvey. Liberty City Manager Gary Broz said the effort has been successful. Liberty’s Main A Drainage pumps have been running constantly for several days, and some are now being turned off periodically for maintenance. The Main B Drainage pumps have been overwhelmed by the amount of rain water, though overall, those pumps have held their own. Now the Liberty City Manager said the city is monitoring the rising Trinity River, though despite rumors to the contrary, the city’s 20-year-old levee remains intact and damage free.
****************************************************
DHS Showers Available: Dayton ISD has opened the new Dayton High School gym for anyone displaced by flood water that is in need of a hot shower. The hours are from 7 to 10 a.m. and again from 4 to 7 p.m. daily. Visitors are asked to go to the DHS student parking lot by the electric marquee and look for the signs directing folks to the gym.
