To the residents in the hardest hit area of District E, the south sector, I have spoken with representatives of CenterPoint Energy at length this morning and CenterPoint crews is currently staging at Galveston County Fair Grounds and the Brazoria County Fair Grounds.

CenterPoint started to assess the damage in Clear Lake and Bay Area this morning at 7:00 am and since then that assessment has been completed.

As this was a wind event vs water event, they have significant electrical damage south of I-10.

They will work on electrical lines feeding critical facilities FIRST, then move to residential areas after restoring power to those critical facilities. Power restoration could take 3-5 days.

CenterPoint has called in 2,700 crews from other mutual aid cities. Thank you for your patience as these crews work safely to restore power as quickly as possible.

CenterPoint Energy ramps up preparations for
Tropical Storm Nicholas impacting its service territory

Houston – Sept. 13, 2021 – CenterPoint Energy continues to monitor weather conditions and prepare for the impact of Tropical Storm Nicholas across the Greater Houston area and surrounding communities. The company has completed systems readiness assessments and thousands of electric and natural gas employees and contractors are ready to respond to the potential impact of flooding caused by the storm.

“The safety of our customers and employees is our top priority, and we have plans in place to respond to this event,” said Kenny Mercado, CenterPoint Energy’s Executive Vice President, Electric Utility. “The biggest threat continues to be flooding. As always with severe weather, we encourage our customers to prepare to be without power and have an emergency plan in place, especially those who depend on electricity for life-sustaining equipment.

“We have personnel, resources and equipment ready to restore electricity to our customers as soon as it is safe to do so. Our Electric Operations mutual assistance crews that were helping in Louisiana have all returned to Houston to assist with the company’s response.”

More than 3,200 electric crews, including distribution, transmission, substation, underground, tree trimmers and damage assessors, will be working 16-hour shifts to restore power as safely and quickly as possible. The company has also prepared its substations by closing flood gates and moving equipment and materials to higher grounds.

Mercado added, “Our crews may be facing some hazardous road conditions, so we ask for our customers’ patience while we work to restore their service.”

In addition, CenterPoint Energy is part of electric utility mutual assistance programs that provide access to thousands of linemen and tree trimmers from around the country to support restoration efforts during widespread power outage emergencies. The company is in close contact with mutual assistance partners in the event additional crews are needed.

CenterPoint Energy is also prepared to meet customers’ natural gas demands across its service territory. “We are ready to respond to potential impact to our system caused by the storm,” said Scott Doyle, CenterPoint Energy’s Executive Vice President, Natural Gas. “As a multi-state natural gas utility, all of Gas Operations technicians and crews in the non-impacted areas are on standby ready to respond, as well as logistics and material support ready to address any restoration efforts required.”

Tropical Storm Nicholas has been upgraded to a Category 1 Hurricane.

TS Nicholas Update:

We are continuing to watch any developments with TS Nicholas. The Lake Houston Area is doing well thanks to long breaks between the bands of rain. At this time due to the majority of the rain staying south the San Jacinto River should be ok.

However, we are closely monitoring Clear Creek in the Clear Lake area where it will likely reach moderate flood stage by around noon tomorrow. We cannot emphasize enough the importance of not getting out on the roads if you do not have to.

Please continue to stay tuned to accredited news sources and local government agencies for updates.
