Last night the City of Seabrook along with communities throughout the Houston-Galveston area experienced unprecedented storms which resulted in substantial flooding to our small city. City staff, police, fire, and emergency services have all been diligently working to keep the citizens of Seabrook safe, secure and informed during this event. Mayor Thom Kolupski cannot stress enough the seriousness of the situation and is imploring all citizens to consider their safety and the safety of others by not venturing out unless it is an emergency.
In an effort to further the security and safety of residents, Mayor Kolupski has signed into effect an order setting a curfew beginning tonight at 10:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. Monday morning that prevents persons without authority from being on the streets and right-of-ways in Seabrook.
In addition to this curfew, we would like to take this time to inform citizens that Seabrook City Hall will be closed tomorrow, Monday, August 28 and that there will be no trash service. Please do not place trash or other items on the curb at this time. The city's water system has not seen an impact from the floods and is safe for consumption. In the event that this changes, you will be immediately informed by city officials.
If your home has suffered flood or wind damage please report it to the city by completing the online assessment form at www.seabrooktx.gov/damagereport.
Flood water can be very dangerous so we highly encourage people to stay put and not travel or venture out into the water. Flood water contains many unseen hazards.
We appreciate your understanding and consideration of the curfew that is being put in place. We will continue to monitor the storm and post updates as they become available. Updates are being posted to www.seabrooktx.gov/harvey.
