A Message from the Executive Director of HAAM
Yesterday's historic floods impacted families across the Houston area, including some in northeast Harris and east Montgomery Counties, where much of HAAM's work is directed. While the flooding in our service areas was not as extensive as some other parts of the region, we realize there may be some isolated incidents of significant damage and impact. We want you to know that we are committed to helping our neighbors in need to recover as quickly as possible. If individual clients and families turn to us for help, please know that we will do all we can for them, as we do daily. We will also respond, as best we can to requests for help from other agencies and service providers outside of our immediate community. We believe that now is the time for us to pull together for the benefit of ALL of our neighbors. Thank you for your ongoing support of our work on behalf of those in need.

Historic Rainfall and Flooding Strike Harris County
April 18, 2016
What is the Danger?
Torrential rainstorms has caused flooding of roadways and homes over large parts of north and northwest Harris County overnight. The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Emergency for parts of the area due to the historic rainfall received overnight.
This is a life threatening flooding event.
What You Should Do:
Stay out of flood waters! If you are at home, STAY THERE. If flood waters enter your home, STAY THERE. To risk crossing flooded streets or overflowing streams means certain death!
Just six inches of water can sweep and adult off of their feet and just two feet of water can move a car – even an SUV. Be Smart: Turn Around, Don’t Drown.
Residents should continue to monitor local media and the National Weather Service for forecast information, school and government office closures, and other lifesaving information.
Various watches and warnings may be issued. Be prepared to act quickly to protect yourself and your family.
Residents are urged to report house flooding at www.readyharris.org/go/survey/1829/11787/ or by calling the Harris County Flood Control District’s phone bank at 713-684-4000. Call 911 only if you believe your life is in danger.
