Hurricane Harvey  

Hurricane Harvey has become a very large storm that presents a very serious and real threat to Texas coastal communities, including the City of Shoreacres. 

Voluntary Evacuation Requested

At 7:00 a.m. this morning Mayor Sanford has called for the voluntary evacuation of residents in low-lying and flood prone areas of the city. Elderly residents as well as those with medical conditions are also encouraged to evacuate. 

Because of the potential of heavy rain, street flooding, and traffic leaving the area, residents evacuating are asked to leave by noon today, Friday, August 25. 

Stay Engaged - Storm Surge Watch 

While Hurricane Harvey is currently tracking into the central Texas coast tropical storms can be unpredictable. 

We are currently under a Storm Surge Watch and this storm is forecast to move east into the Houston area after making landfall. 

Stay vigilant and monitor this storm for impacts it will have to our area including heavy rain, gale force winds, and possible tornadoes. These conditions may continue through Tuesday, August 29. 

Please monitor local media for weather updates. Visit the City of Shoreacres' website  to sign-up for emergency notices, updates, and messages from the city.
