As all of us are keenly aware, on Friday August 25, 2017 Hurricane Harvey slammed into the Texas coastal town of Rockport. The amount of rain we received in the Houston area was tremendous and unprecedented. Preparations and safeguards that we had put in place for this type of emergency were not enough to fully protect portions of our property. Although we had no water coming into our front door we did sustain some serious damage in our basement. As a result, Brazos Towers at Bayou Manor received 52 inches of water into our basement area. Since our original building was constructed in 1963 the basement was where the heart of much of our electrical systems were housed. Now all those systems must be rebuilt and relocated.
Thankfully, during the storm all our residents remained safe, dry and well cared for. Many of them are still here in the community working to regain a sense of normalcy, while others have been temporarily relocated to accommodations that have the electricity, AC, TV, phone, internet and care that they need to stay happy and healthy. We continue to work diligently to restore services to their homes here at Brazos Towers at Bayou Manor.
Many members of our extended family, friends, professional partners and neighbors have been eager to hear more about what we need and how they can help. We very much appreciate your concern and offers for assistance. If you are so inclined to help with a donation please feel free to do so here, rest assured we will put it to good use. We are grateful to our residents, their families, friends and neighbors for their prayers, words of encouragement and unwavering support.
It means more to us than you will ever know. Keeping the faith!!!
