Updates from May 20, 2024

8:30PM Update

According to CenterPoint there are 10 homes still without power in Jersey Village. They are working to replace a transformer, which will restore power to these homes. 


2:30PM Update

Several more areas of the city have had electricity restored. The last of the city is expected to be restored by 5pm. There may be individual homes that are do not have electricity, if their services lines are damaged. 

The splashpad may take a day or so to open after power is restored, to ensure the water is safe for use. 

If your home was damaged in the storm please be sure to get a permit before you commence work. You can find all of our permitting information here. This includes fences, roofing, etc. 


Debris removal is being contracted out, as it is more than initially expected. That work will begin most likely on Wednesday (May 22). Residents are encouraged to get their tree debris to the curb as soon as possible.  Contractors will make a pass to clean it up.

Debris removal crews will be using large trucks with grapples on them. It is possible that grapple will not be able to clear the debris in front of your home due to proximity to trees, mailboxes, etc. If it appears that your home got skipped, please assured that crews will be by again with a different means of picking up your debris. There is no need to report this. City staff will verify all debris is picked up before the company leaves Jersey Village. 

If any property (ie. mailbox, sprinkler system, etc.) is damaged in that process please fill out this form as soon as possible so we can ensure it is fixed quickly.

4:45pm Update
We just spoke to CenterPoint. They told us they have all of the damage assessments completed. They have crews going out now with work orders to make the repairs. They will also have estimated power restoration times this evening.
The Civic Center will be open until 8pm this evening. Tomorrow (Sunday, May 19) the Civic Center will be open starting at 10am and will be open until 8pm.
We also want to remind residents to prioritize food safety to prevent foodborne illnesses following the recent Houston area storm. Power outages can compromise the safety of refrigerated and frozen foods. It is essential to follow guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Key Food Safety Recommendations:
Keep Refrigerator and Freezer Doors Closed:
A refrigerator will keep food cold for about 4 hours if unopened.
A full freezer will maintain its temperature for approximately 48 hours (24 hours if half full) if the door remains closed.
Monitor Temperatures:
Use a food thermometer to check the temperature of your refrigerator and freezer. The refrigerator should be at or below 40°F, and the freezer should be at or below 0°F.
Discard any perishable food (meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and leftovers) that has been above 40°F for 2 hours or more.
When in Doubt, Throw it Out:
If you are unsure whether a particular food item is safe, do not taste it. It is better to discard it to prevent the risk of foodborne illness.
Examine Each Item Separately:
Some foods may appear safe even if they are not. Use both time and temperature to decide which foods to keep and which to discard.
Additional Tips:
Have appliance thermometers in your refrigerator and freezer to ensure they are at the correct temperatures.
Consider keeping a supply of non-perishable foods that do not require refrigeration.
