The Fulshear Emergency Operations Center lowered its readiness level to “normal” this a.m., as the threat of imminent danger to life and property from weekend rains has passed. Most streets are now passable, with the exception of Fulshear Bend (limited), and Red Bird Lane, which is now closed at Bois d’Arc. However, residents are encouraged to keep an eye on the weather, and Brazos River levels, as any upcoming weather could adversely affect conditions.
Floodwaters can contain numerous hazards. According to the Centers for Disease Control, flood waters and standing waters pose various risks, including infectious diseases, chemical hazards, and injuries. Additionally, critters such as fire ants, snakes, and alligators, all become displaced during floods. Residents should exercise caution when outside, and avoid floodwaters.
City offices have returned to regular services, and residents are also encouraged to continue to report concerns to the City so they may be investigated.
