As darkness approaches, the dangers for First Responders who are going into flood waters to rescue citizens, increases significantly. With this in mind, the City of Beaumont will suspend water evacuations at nightfall unless it is a life or death emergency. If you believe that you need to evacuate from your home because of rising flood waters, which are expected to continue, PLEASE Call 311 for assistance NOW!
There are still only voluntary evacuation orders in effect for residents who reside North of Broussard Road, and live on the following streets: Best Road, Hillcrest Drive, Crest Drive, Stonetown Road, Loop Road, Oak Ridge Street, Pine Ridge Street, the 8000 Block of Mitchell Road, Carpenter Road, Bayou Lane, and the 11600 Block of Jamestown Street.
We want to encourage everyone, even those not in the voluntary evacuation area, to continue monitoring their local news and make informed decisions about your families safety.
