Power Outage Update

Power Outage Update

The City of Seabrook has been in communication with CenterPoint and CenterPoint is aware of the outages in Seabrook. CenterPoint’s website and their call center have been inundated and are not operational at this time.

 

At approximately 1:25 a.m. the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) had to initiate rotating outages all across the state. According to ECROT, the high demands and extreme weather conditions caused many generating units – across fuel types – to trip offline and become unavailable. CenterPoint is working to address the power outages across the Houston region and will provide The City of Seabrook with an update for the residents as soon as they are able.

 

If you are without power you should: 

  • Close any blinds/curtains or put blankets or towels up to cover windows and provide insulation
  • Close off rooms to avoid losing heat
  • Stuff towels in cracks under doors, esp. exterior ones
  • Wear layers of loose-fitting, warm clothing, especially warm socks and gloves if you have them
  • Eat and drink food to provide energy to warm the body but avoid alcohol or caffeine
  • If you have candles, lighting them can help act as a heat source, especially in an enclosed space. But do not rely on them, and remember to practice good fire safety.
  • Under no circumstances should you bring a generator inside. They should remain 30 feet away from your home
  • Don't use a stove or oven for heat, this can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning

Residents are still advised to stay off roadways. The Seabrook-Kemah Bridge and SH146 between Red Bluff to Fred Hartman Bridge is closed. Several traffic signals in the city are inoperable due to power outages, so if you are on the roads, please stop at intersections with power outages and use extreme caution prior to proceeding. Intersections without power should be approached as a 4-way stop.
