Mayor Sylvester Turner has lifted the citywide curfew he imposed last Wednesday for all but the area of west Houston below the Addicks and Barker dams, part of which is under a mandatory evacuation order due to ongoing flooding.

The area in which residents must remain home between midnight and 5 a.m. is west of Gessner, east of Highway 6, South of Interstate 10 and north of Briar Forest.


“It’s for public safety purposes and to make sure people who are out of their homes they don’t have to worry about their homes being burglarized,” Turner said last week in imposing the rule. 

He said he had heard from many residents concerned that their homes would be looted while they were displaced due to flood damage. 

The curfew does not apply inside the city of Bunker Hill Village and does not apply to emergency response efforts, late shift workers, volunteers assisting in the flood recovery, those seeking medical attention or an emergency shelter or those passing through to another city.
