Ingleside remains without utilities, issues nightly curfew

The City of Ingleside issued a nightly curfew and advised that the city remains without electricity, phone, gas or internet services Saturday night.

In a press release Saturday evening, city officials confirmed that the city remains without utility services following the landfall of Hurricane Harvey. As a result, State Troopers and National Guard operating in the city will allow residents with valid photo identification back into the area "at (their) own risk."

The city also issued a curfew order for the hours of 9:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m.

Officials advised that city staff were bringing in fresh water intended to arrive as soon as possible. The city remains under a water boil order, meaning citizens must boil water for at least 2 minutes before consumption. The water was said to be safe for bathing but not for brushing teeth, drinking or cooking without first boiling and cooling.

Residents with questions were encouraged to call the city's Emergency Operations Center at 361-776-0325, or 361-523-9499, or 361-522-0240.

Ingleside Independent School District Superintendent, Troy Mircovich stated that he will not be considering reopening the city's schools until power has been restored and all campuses have been secured.

The city advised that they will release more information frequently, with the next notice expected by noon Sunday.
