Very early this morning, the Army Corps of Engineers ordered mandatory evacuations for a huge swath of neighborhoods near the Barker Reservoir in Ft. Bend County, Texas. However, hours later, the scope of the evacuation is under question.
An interview on KHOU-11 with Alan Spears from the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) in Ft. Bend County is contradicting the original evacuation order. Spears said the order will be modified within the hour. He also stated that the order applied to homeowners who have already left, trying to prevent them from re-entering a subdivision.
To view the new, modified order when it is issued, go to the Ft. Bend County OEM website.
Neighborhoods listed in the original order are below.
