As of Monday, September 15 at 9 a.m., all citizens of Orange County may return to the respective cities and unincorporated areas of Orange County for the sole purpose of evaluating damage to their property.

No person should assume that any services are available to those who return to inspect their property. To the extent that limited water and sewer may be available, citizens are advised to use the water for clean up only. Don't attempt to drink any water, other than bottled water, until further notice.

Citizens will be required to vacate the city and unincorporated areas of Orange County by 6 p.m. each day so that law enforcement may use all available resources to keep property secure. In no event will persons be allowed to roam any city or other area of Orange County. Anyone found in a city or unincorporated area of Orange County after 6 p.m. may be detained or required to leave the city or unincorporated area of Orange County.

Any one know how the area of North Sutton drive in Vidor faired?? Estimates of when things will be restored? We have been unable to reach any of our family... I'm assuming it's because there is no power etc.... it's very frustrating not knowing if everyone's okay.

Theres a saying rather be safe then sorry. LEAVE. Use bill money like everybody else. We leave every time and just pray that every thing will be ok. We had Rita damage. some minor Ike damage. But we are ok. Husband has not went back to work waiting for them to call any day. so we are like everybody else no food in the icebox or a paycheck coming in. BUT we are safe.
