Winter Weather Updates

Winter Weather Update

ROAD CONDITIONS
As the sun sets this evening, we would like to take some time to remind residents that temperatures are expected to drop into the teens again this evening and that temperatures will not rise above freezing until after noon on Tuesday. As a result, roadways are expected to re-ice later tonight creating hazardous road conditions. The Seabrook-Kemah bridge and north and southbound traffic at the SH146 Red Bluff overpass are both closed and are expected to remain closed until roadways improve. 

POWER OUTAGES
According to CenterPoint Energy, power outages are expected to continue this evening, that have also resulted in inoperable traffic signals. If you approach an intersection with a traffic signal that is out, please approach it as a 4-way stop and use extreme caution. CenterPoint Energy released a statement earlier today encouraging all residents who still have power to conserve power as much as possible. Additional updates from CenterPoint Energy will be released as they are made available. If you are in need of emergency assistance due to the cold, please contact dispatch by calling (281) 291-5610. 

WATER AND WASTEWATER
Seabrook Public Works would like to encourage residents to start checking for leaks around their home. Leaks will typically be outside and under homes, especially with back-flow devices and irrigation systems. As water service lines begin to thaw, residents could see a loss in water pressure as pipes burst and water leaks occur. Public Works have already had reports of this occurring and expect it to continue as temperatures rise above freezing. 

In the event of a busted pipe or water leak, residents should turn the water off to their home and contact a plumber. The valve to shut off water to most homes is located on the side of the home or in the garage. Only city personnel should shut-off water by accessing the valve at the water meter.  Pipes that burst within the city right of way should be reported to Seabrook Public Works by calling (281) 291-5725. Please continue to drip faucets throughout the night tonight. As temperatures rise above 32 degrees tomorrow, there will no longer be a need to drip faucets. Similar to conserving energy, please limit the use of water and wastewater when possible to help protect our water and wastewater infrastructure.  

TRASH  AND RECYCLING SERVICE
Waste Management has suspended trash and recycling service for Tuesday, February 16, 2021. Tuesday customers will be serviced on their next scheduled pickup day; Friday, February 19, 2021. If your scheduled pickup day is Tuesday, please do not place your trash bins on the curb tonight or tomorrow.

CITY OFFICES
City offices will remain closed on Tuesday, February 16, 2021. The decision to hold Tuesday’s virtual City Council meeting will be made Tuesday morning. Please follow the City of Seabrook on social media for meeting updates. 

Please do not inundate 9-1-1 with non-emergencies. Non-emergencies may be reported to dispatch by calling (281) 291-5610.  

We encourage everyone to monitor the City of Seabrook’s social media channels and website for additional winter storm updates and to stay off the roads as much as possible.
