DPS warns residents: flooding still a risk

 BEAUMONT –  The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is urging Southeast Texans to remain vigilant and closely monitor rising water levels near rivers and bayous.

Overnight storms significantly impacted our area with heavy rainfall, hail, damaging winds, flash flooding and river flooding. Any additional rainfall will exacerbate already saturated grounds and rivers at or above flood levels; therefore, we urge residents to remain alert and heed the warnings of their local officials.

As of 11:30am, Newton County officials reported several road closures due to flooding. The majority of these road closures are on County roads. Residents in flooded areas should pay close attention to reported road closures and flood warnings issued by their local and county officials.

Southeast Texans are encouraged to follow these safety tips: 

  • Avoid flooded areas and avoid any fast-flowing water.
  • Be extremely cautious of any water on roads – never attempt to cross flowing streams or drive across flooded roadways and always observe road barricades placed for your protection.
  • Driving around barricades at flooded roads is illegal – and puts you and first responders at risk'
  • Remember that dangerous waters can seem deceptively calm, and if you encounter flooding, move to higher ground.
  • Keep in mind that flood dangers are even higher at night.
  • Be prepared before you get on the road. Texans can get the latest information on road conditions for Interstate Highways, US Highways and Farm to Market (FM) roads from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) website or call 1-800-452-9292.


Mail delivery continues for Houston and surrounding area

HOUSTON --  In the aftermath of torrential rain and overnight flooding that has crippled Houston City, shut down highways and left thousands stranded, the US Postal service will make mail deliveries where possible.


As water recedes in impacted areas and conditions improve, we will make every attempt to deliver mail in areas where delivery was not permissible due to flooding. Each day, Houston City Post Offices deliver mail to approximately 2.1 million residential and business customers in the 770 ZIP Code areas.


Houston City post offices have 2,435 city letter carriers and 240 rural carriers who deliver four million letters and packages to residents of Houston City daily.


“Our employees take great pride in delivering for our customers and delivering through inclement weather is what our customers have come to expect.” said Bobby Collins, Officer In Charge, Houston City.


“As conditions improve we will make every attempt to deliver to every household. Our goal is to meet our customers delivery needs; however, please keep in mind, delivery times may be later than usual.”

The U.S. Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
