Aransas County Sheriff's Office | Updates for the 10th of September

Updates for 10 September:

Recovery assistance:

- You can pick up tarps at the POD (at old HEB). Water, ice, and meals are also available there.
- Red Cross is transitioning from response to recovery. They have Disaster Assistance Teams in the field. We have 35 residents staying at the shelter in Refugio, and 81 residents at the Ben Garza Gym shelter.
- FEMA approved a voucher plan to provide living assistance and cover approved stays at motels. This will eliminate the need for individuals to get additional funds each week.
- FEMA is offering clean-up assistance and mold removal/mitigation in addition to and above insurance.

Public works:
- The County Transfer Station will stay open 7 days a week 7a-6p. They have converted 50,509 cubic yards of brush in to 4,440 cubic yards of mulch.
- Be cautious where you pile debris and brush. Do not stack on top of sewer, water meters, storm drains, etc. The equipment used to pick up the debris is causing some damage to whatever is underneath the debris.

Medical care:
- Medical has given over 1,000 tetanus shots. If you have not had a tetanus shot in the last year, or if you have already stepped on a nail, we highly recommend that you get a shot.
- Texas A&M veterinarian services are demobilizing today with some local veterinarians opening up tomorrow.

Signs that we are returning to normal:
- 1 restaurant is open
- Wal-Mart grocery and pharmacy are open
- 3 motels are open and filled

Take time to reflect on Patriot's Day tomorrow.
