New areas urged to evacuate due to bayou flooding


Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner has strongly encouraged residents with water in their homes along Buffalo Bayou west of Gessner and south of Interstate 10 to evacuate.

Turner says flooding in that area is not expected to improve over the next two weeks as water continues to be released from the Addicks and Barker reservoirs.

He cited residents' personal safety and the strain on first responders as the main reasons for the evacuation request. The mayor said that even though his request was voluntary, he could make it mandatory if the situation warrants. Turner also said emergency crews would shuttle residents to shelters if needed.

These neighborhoods within the reservoir watershed are included in the voluntary evacuation requests.
