FORT BEND COUNTY, TX – Fort Bend County Judge ordered a curfew put into place on August 31 to assist law enforcement in the protection of private property within evacuation zones in Fort Bend County. The curfew was in effect from August 31 until today, when the Judge terminated the curfew.
“Along with the cancelling of many of the evacuation orders, conditions have improved to the point that we can now lift the curfew to better allow people access to their property.” says County Judge Bob Hebert.
While it is now safe enough to lift the curfew, individual neighborhoods and homes may still pose hazards that residents should be aware of. Displaced animals, contaminated flood waters, and unstable structures can pose an ongoing hazard to residents trying to return home.
