FINAL UPDATE - Hurricane Laura

FINAL UPDATE – HURRICANE LAURA

Updated – Thursday Aug. 27 @ 9:10 am

Fortunately, West U and the Houston area were spared any significant issues resulting from Hurricane Laura.  Our hearts and prayers go out those communities in east Texas and Louisiana who were not as fortunate as us as they recover from this major hurricane.

Regarding City services in West U:


Thursday Aug. 27 

  • All facilities, except the Police Department lobby will remained closed for Thursday.  
  • There will be no trash, recycling or yard waste collection today.
  • Trash will be collected on Monday
  • Yard waste/recycling will be collected next Thursday
  • City staff that sheltered in-place last night will be working this morning to prepare facilities for a Friday reopening (tables, chairs and equipment at recreational facilities and fences in the parks)

We apologize for any inconvenience today as we prepare facilities for reopening on Friday.

Friday Aug. 28:  

  • Normal operations for all departments and City provided services.

Lastly, please take a minute to assess your family’s preparedness for a major storm event.  As we all know, living in the Gulf Coast is not matter of “IF” but a matter of “WHEN” it will happen.  Below is a screen shot taken last night of Hurricane Laura and how close we came to having a direct hit on Houston.
