City staff, MVPD, and VFD continue recovery efforts from Hurricane Beryl throughout the City and the Villages. The severe winds caused many downed trees, powerlines, fences, debris, etc.    All major streets have been cleared and are now accessible, with the exception of any trees making contact with power lines. Pedestrians are encouraged to exercise caution as there may still be trees/branches blocking sidewalks.

Mayor Lord has issued an official Declaration of Disaster, as well as imposed a Temporary Curfew Order between the hours of 12:00 a.m. – 6:00 a.m.

CPE is responsible for handling downed power lines or vegetation that is leaning or hanging on power lines. Please note that the City does not have the ability or authority to assess the electrical distribution system and are working with CenterPoint representatives of all levels to ensure we have the most up to date information, attain status updates, and expedite repairs as quickly as possible. We ask for your continued patience throughout this process.

Storm Debris Removal

Harris County Precinct 3 is expected to begin debris removal operations on Tuesday, July 16, 2024. All debris must be stacked in the right of way (ROW) in accordance with the infographic. Please note that due to the extensive coverage area, collection may not be immediate and may take a few days to several weeks.  Please do not park vehicles on the street near debris piles and do not stack items on top of meter boxes, water valves, inlets, ditches, etc. 

As you continue to clean up your property, please note that trees on private property are the responsibility of the property owner.

MVPD is compiling a list of properties with debris ready for pick-up to expedite collection. If you have debris for collection, please notify MVPD Dispatch by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. using the following format:

Permits (tree, fence, electrical, roof)

The City is making a temporary exception for permits related to tree removal, fence replacement, and roof replacement only. Emergency repairs may be completed before obtaining a permit, but please notify This email address is being protected from spambots.

Emergency repairs may be completed, however, please make sure your contractor follows up to obtain the proper permit and inspections through the online portal. Any unpermitted work outside the grace period will be subject to enforcement. Please allow additional time for permit processing.
