Voluntary Evacuation

Voluntary Evacuation

Mayor Thom Kolupski has extended the voluntary evacuation recommendation to the entire city. The National Weather Services has issued a Hurricane Warning for Seabrook and a Storm Surge Warning for Galveston Bay. While there is still a moderate degree of uncertainty regarding the track of the storm, Laura is now a hurricane and forecasted to strengthen to a category 3 before landfall.


The recommendation to voluntary evacuate should seriously be considered by the city’s most vulnerable populations, including those who are disabled or have medical conditions. While the exact impacts of Hurricane Laura are unknown at this time, there is an increased chance that some city services such as police, fire, and EMS may be affected by the storm. 


Wind and storm surge are the greatest potential threats with Hurricane Laura. All residents, whether evacuating or planning to stay, should prepare their home by securing loose items outside the home including furniture, trampolines, potted plants, trash, and recycling containers, etc. Tropical-storm-force winds may arrive by Wednesday evening.  


The exact track of Hurricane Laura is still subject to change quickly and all residents are urged to have a plan in place in the event of a mandatory evacuation. All non-essential city facilities will close at noon today, August 25, 2020. There will be no trash or recycling services on Thursday; service may resume on Friday depending on the impacts of the storm. While Wednesday service will not be impacted, residents should have their containers curbside by 7:00 a.m. and all containers must be secured or brought inside as soon as possible following pickup on Wednesday. Residents should not leave their trash and recycling bins unsecured during the storm.


Residents are urged to sign up for Seabrook Alerts through the city’s Swift911 notification system. Residents signed up to receive alerts may receive voice messages, text, and email notifications. Residents who are already signed up to receive alerts should review their communication preferences in the system. To register or to log in visit www.seabrooktx.gov/alerts. Alerts and updates will also be posted to www.seabrooktx.gov/Laura and on the city’s social media networks as the storm continues to move.
