MAYOR ENDS CURFEW RELATED TO FLOODING

HOUSTON - Mayor Sylvester Turner announced today that he has ended the flood-related curfew in all areas of the city.

The midnight- 5 a.m. curfew was lifted several days ago for most of the city but had remained in effect for neighborhoods of west Houston flooded by releases of rainwater from U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reservoirs.

Now the mayor has ended the curfew for those areas immediately east of the reservoirs and for all other Houston neighborhoods.

The curfew was aimed at protecting homes and other properties that were evacuated due to flooding from Hurricane Harvey and subsequent reservoir releases. The number of citations and arrests for violations of the curfew was minimal.
