City of Friendswood
News Release
Tuesday, August 29, 2017

Friendswood continues to conduct high water rescues from flooding homes. Get to the second floor of your home. If you live in a one story home, get to the roof should it be necessary. Call 911 only if you need to be rescued or have a medical emergency.

We have received an outpouring of volunteer medical personnel, no additional medical personnel are needed at this time. For those wanting to donate, do not drop clothing at city facilities or temporary shelters. Information on how to donate will be available at a later time. 

More than 3,000 homes are estimated to have flooded. At least 2,000 or more of these are not likely to have flood insurance as they were not considered to be in a NFIP flood zone. Water levels have far exceeded the “500 year” flood zones.  Water levels are unprecedented.

If your home is dry, you are asked to stay off of the roads. Avoid driving through high water, turn around don’t drown.
