Voluntary Evacuation for Red Bird Lane area Residents

 August 26, 2017: Hurricane Harvey has been downgraded to a tropical storm, but is still expected to dump torrential rain along the middle and upper Texas coast throughout the weekend and into next week.

Prolonged heavy rainfall accumulation is expected across the region and the Brazos River is predicted to crest at Richmond above major flood stage early next week.

The City is issuing a voluntary evacuation for residents in the Red Bird Lane area and encouraging residents to take advantage of breaks in the storms to safely evacuate their homes. We have pre-positioned resources for closing Red Bird Lane and establishing walking path access when necessitated.

Due to the unpredictable nature of the current weather system, and the saturation of the land in the Brazos watershed in and around the Fulshear area, the City strongly encourages residents to be prepared to be gone from their residences for at least a multiple day period.

The Fulshear Police Department will have public safety officers assigned to the area to help assure protection of property while residents are evacuated from their homes.

When preparing to leave, be sure to secure your home by closing and locking doors and windows, unplugging electrical equipment and small appliances, telling someone where you’re going and how to contact you. Be sure to take critical documents and medicines for your family and pets with you.

Thank you for your patience as we work to secure life and property. Please continue to monitor the City's website and facebook page for updates.
