Police advise 211 is not currently taking evacuation registrations

The Beaumont Police Department advised Aug. 24 that 211 is not currently accepting evacuation registration due to the close proximity of the storm and the estimated time it is to make landfall. 

According to BPD, "Please do not call 211 to try and register for evacuation. The state will not accept registrations when a storm is less than 48 hours from potential landfall. At this time, we do not anticipate calling for a mandatory evacuation of our area. There are locations in Southeast Texas that are calling for a voluntary evacuation. We will continue to send out updates.

"If you are in low lying areas, please make plans for high water and flooding."

Beaumont residents must call 311 for help if they are in need and have no assistance, BPD further advised.
