Houston, TX (May 24, 2015) – Due to the heavy rainfall and the risk to those living around Lewis Creek Dam, Montgomery County’s Emergency Office has issued an evacuation for residents in the area.

The Salvation Army of Greater Houston deployed its Conroe Corps canteen (mobile kitchen) this morning and will be serving breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Red Cross shelter set up at Lone Star Community Center, located at 2500 Lone Star Parkway, Montgomery, Texas.

Mobile kitchens from the Pasadena Corps and Northwest Corps have been placed on standby. 

“With heavy rain expected today and tomorrow, we are ready to support emergency relief efforts any way we can,” said Major Chris Flanagan, Area Commander for The Salvation Army of Greater Houston. “The Salvation Army is here to help those most in need in our community.”
