District 146 Under Siege - Relief & Rescues Underway


As predicted, during the night most communities in District 146 suffered from devastating flooding. Long-standing neighborhoods: Brays Oaks, Meyerland, Sharpstown, Southpark, Sunnyside, Third Ward, & Westbury are all underwater.

Many of my constituents have contacted me asking how to evacuate to shelters as the waters continue to seep in their homes. All multi-purpose centers are scheduled to be opened for shelter shortly. Right now, here is a current LIST OF CITY & COUNTY SHELTERS:

Additionally, these major bayous are now out of their banks:

  • Brays
  • Buffalo
  • White Oak
  • Hunting
  • Greens
  • Halls
  • Willow Water Hole Creek
  • Cypress Creek
  • San Jacinto River at US59 North
  • Keegan’s
  • Briar Branch Gully

As a result of these latest developments, I will be speaking with the Mayor's office this afternoon to discuss all pending relief & rescue efforts and other important information. Additional resources have been requested from the state, and we are expecting an additional 25 high water trucks and 40 rescue boats.

As I work in tandem with federal, state, county, and city officials to coordinate rescues for people in life-threatening danger, please continue to shelter in place, if possible. Keep in mind that most ALL of our major roads and highways are completely impassable.


If your house is flooding inside at life threatening levels and you need a high-water rescue- CALL 911, go to your roof, with rain gear and cell phone in your pocket. Do not go in your attic, as this can create dangerous conditions and you can become trapped. I hear your reports of extra long hold timss for 9-1-1. You will most likely need to call 9-1-1 repeatedly to get through, KEEP CALLING. If you hear ringing on the line do NOT hang up!

Although we are all alarmed at these shocking weather conditions, we must use 9-1-1 for life-threatening issues only, so that they can answer and dispatch to those in dire need as quickly as possible. All other inquires may call the following numbers:

Harris County Emergency Management:

City of Houston
Information Line: 3-1-1

City of Houston Office of Emergency Management: 713-884-4500

Harris County Sheriff's Office
Non-Emergency Line: 713-221-6000

Harris County Precinct One:
Evacuation Assistance:2-1-1

You may send me photos of your situation or any other information that you would like to relay to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. I will relay data with City of Houston officials as we plan for the next phase of operations.

We are now all in an extreme emergency situation. Please continue to check in with family and on vulnerable neighbors. I am doing everything possible to keep everyone updated with real time information by phone, email, and via social media.

We are are a strong district, city and state. I believe we can get through this with good communication and smart solutions. Check in with you all soon.
