TOWN OF HOLIDAY LAKES
Attention Holiday Lakes Residents, given additional information obtained last night we now believe the Brazos River will meet or exceed the level we saw last year. If you flooded last year and did not elevate you will likely flood again this year. If the water got close to your home you may flood this time.
Mayor Norman Schroeder is calling for a Mandatory Evacuation, please decide where you are going and be evacuated by Sunday mid-day. There is a shelter at 1900 N. Downing at the Angleton ISD Administration Building. Please be aware if you choose to stay, and then need help, help may take a while to get to you.
At this time, we are unsure as to how long it will take the water to get to us and then how long it will take for it to recede. We will be providing further updates as information becomes available. Thank you, have a blessed day, and please stay safe.
Additionally, due to catstrophic water loss during the last flood officials have decided to disconnect all home begining tomorrow morning. If you decide you are safe and stay to keep water you must let us know. Also, please keep in mind help may not be available if you need it.

AUSTIN – As Hurricane Harvey makes its way toward the Texas coastline, the Texas Department of Transportation is asking Texans to stay up-to-date on possible ferry and road closures.
At this time, all ferry operations are running, but that could change quickly as water surges exceed 5 feet. At this time, it is now likely the ferries in Port Aransas will run through late Friday morning, conditions permitting.
Road conditions and traffic updates are available on DriveTexas.org and on Facebook, www.facebook.com/txdot and Twitter, www.twitter.com/txdot. If you see barricades or water over a road, please do not go around them and do not attempt to cross the road – Turn Around; Don’t Drown.
We also encourage families to make preparations for this storm by filling up gas tanks for possible evacuations and by getting at least three days of food and water for possibly sheltering in place.
For media inquiries, contact TxDOT Media Relations at MediaRelations@txdot.gov or (512) 463-8700.
