Hospital ER & Clinic: The Liberty Dayton Regional Medical Center’s emergency room doctors and staff have also been very busy since Hurricane Harvey pounded on shore. Administrator and CEO Matt Thornton said the hospital’s ER has served 2 to 3 times the number of patients as it normally would during the same time span. The ER is for those who need emergency care. Those who need medical care normally handled by their personal physician should attempt to use those resources. If your doctor’s office is closed, the hospital is opening a clinic today through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. This clinic is operating differently, just to help as many patients as possible. After the crisis is passed, they should get back to normal. The clinic entrance is on the Travis Street side of the hospital while the emergency room entrance is off Magnolia Street.
Rain Totals: KSHN maintains the official records for the U.S. Weather Service here in south Liberty County. From Friday through Wednesday, 41.75 inches of rain fell on the City of Liberty. To put that into perspective, the average yearly rainfall for this area is 61.25 inches. Of note, in 2011, Liberty recorded its record-low year for rainfall at a really low total with 28.28 inches – again that was for the entire year. Last Friday, 2.1 inches fell in the Liberty gauge. Saturday’s rain total was 11.2 inches followed by another 17.9 inches Sunday. At the U.S. Weather Service rain gauge, KSHN recorded 5.7 inches Monday, 4.17 on Tuesday and another .15 inches on Wednesday. Again, that is a six-day total from Hurricane Harvey of 41.75 inches of rain.
Liberty: Thanks to a now mostly exhausted staff, Liberty City Manager Gary Broz said the city has managed to weather the extreme flooding brought on by Hurricane Harvey. Mr. Broz said, in spite of rumors to the contrary, the city levee is fine, the water service has been uninterrupted and power outages have been few. Mr. Broz said they hope to know more today about whether L. T.’S Garbage Service Trucks will be able to make a trash pickup run in Liberty. The Liberty City Manager said at this point, the first priority is commercial pickup, since trash has been accumulating at Liberty businesses since late last week.
Labor Day Closings: The Liberty County Courthouse and all county offices are open today with a smaller than normal staff as are the municipal offices in Liberty, Cleveland and Dayton. All of those offices will be closed Monday for the Labor Day Holiday. Banks and post offices will also be closed Monday.
