HOUSTON - Mayor Pro Tem Dave Martin would like to make Kingwood area residents aware early Sunday morning the Kingwood Area was hit by tornadoes, later that same day, Houston Public Works and Houston Parks Forestry Teams cut/removed debris and traffic signals were reset after power was restored. CenterPoint Energy also dispatched crews to the area to restore power as well as remove down trees from power lines. Many thanks to Kingwood Residents who were out helping one another and continue to be there for one another today.
There are some lingering traffic signal issues on Kingwood Drive at Woodland Grove as well as Trailwood Village. Crews have been routed to the area to address the flashing signals this evening. The next step will be residential storm debris removal. Houston Public Work's Emergency Operations has worked with City of Houston Solid Waste Management Department to identify locations and scope of debris pickup needed. District E Staff is also in the field recording data for residential storm debris pick up.
Residential storm debris pick up can be reported by calling (713) 837-0311, make sure you report the issue as "STORM DEBRIS". If you see any trees blocking roadways or if any street lights need to be reset again, you can assist by calling Houston 311 (713) 837-0311.
Crews will begin collection, as early as Tuesday, January 11, 2022. Residents in the affected areas are asked to report their storm debris to Houston 311 as well as separate piles when placing debris at the curb. Please do your part to keep roadways clear, allowing for City of Houston Solid Waste Management Crews to maneuver in and around the communities more easily. Additionally, it is the responsibility of any contractor to haul off any materials during their repairs.
