Per La Marque Mayor Bobby Hocking, City of La Marque will follow Judge Henry’s order of curfew from dawn to dusk until further notice. Harvey's heavy rainfall isn't over yet - an additional 10-25 inches is expected over the next five days for much of the area. The latest radar estimate at 3:00 p.m. shows widespread rain totals over one foot thus far and still more rain to come over the next several days.  

Driving through flood waters creates a wake that could push the flooding into someone's home. DO NOT DRIVE THROUGH FLOOD WATERS. STAY SAFE, STAY PUT.

Local, state and federal agencies are working diligently to ensure the safety of our citizens and perform rescue operations for those in need. If you are able to, please flag down rescue boats and personnel in your neighborhood. Our call center is unable to keep up with the amount of calls at this time. Please seek higher ground until rescue crews can reach you. If you are in imminent danger of death, please call 911 or Galveston County at 281-309-5009. To report non-emergencies, such as street flooding or water in your home, call La Marque Police Dispatch at 409-938-9269, option 1.

If you haven’t already, please register for notifications from the City of La Marque at http://www.ci.la-marque.tx.us/145/Stay-i.... For immediate updates, monitor local news outlets and National Weather Service Houston-Galveston.

Please be safe. We are all in this together.
