City Emergency Operations Center Activated

Heavy Rains and Flooding Continue

The City of Corpus Christi’s Emergency Operations Center activated at midnight in response to heavy rains and flooding moving through the area.

Emergency crews have been busy making high water rescues of people trapped in vehicles and families living in low lying areas. At this point, all have been transported safely to higher ground to stay with family and/or friends. These rescues have been made in several areas all over the city, including Flour Bluff and the south side areas of S. Staples, Airline, SPID and Saratoga which seem to be the most affected area. No injuries have been reported.

The American Red Cross has been alerted and is standing by if needed. Fire, Police, MetroCom, Solid Waste Operations, Parks and Recreation’s Senior Services, Street Operations, with assistance from the Annaville and Flour Bluff Volunteer Fire Departments, continue to work together and respond to potential calls and services when needed.

The City is continuing to receive additional rainfall and the EOC will remain activated as the City continues to monitor and respond as needed.
