Hurricane Ike Info. for Houston Area

From Congressman Gene Greene

Hurricane Ike is projected to make landfall on the Texas
Coast early Saturday morning (the 13th). On its current path, this
strong Category 3 hurricane (winds of 110-115 mph) will bring
severe winds and potential flooding if bayous are backed up from
the storm surge. I strongly urge you to monitor television and
radio for information on this storm and follow the advice of local
emergency management.

Here is a link to a map of our area's storm surge areas and
and attached is a map of the evacuation routes. Below are some
useful numbers.

* American Red Cross: For Shelter and Service Locations: 1-
866-GET-INFO; For Emergency Financial Assistance: 1-

* Special needs evacuation: 211 or 311 for City of Houston,
713-837-0311 for Harris County

* After the storm, if your home and/or property are damaged
and you need assistance you can register for FEMA
assistance at: 1-800-621-FEMA

This is an emergency notification email, please do not
respond by email. If you have difficulty regarding your recovery
after the storm, you may contact our North Office at 281-999-5879
and East Office at 713-330-0761. I hope you find this information
useful, and I wish you and your family well during this potentially
very dangerous storm.

Gene Green
Member of Congress
