Imelda Damage Survey


ORANGE COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PRESS RELEASE #12 SEPTEMBER 21, 2019 

IMELDA DAMAGE SURVEY 

Orange County Emergency Management Officials have begun recovery efforts. To provide assistance to Orange County citizens in the most efficient and accurate way we are asking each citizen affected by Tropical Storm Imelda to complete the IMELDA DAMAGE SURVEY located on Orange County's website www.co.orange.tx.us.

The objective of this survey is to: 

• Assess and identify damages and needs within the community
• Effectively allocate money, materials, and resources
• To pinpoint areas most affected for priority response
• Provide disaster relief organizations with an accurate list of affected homes
Citizens need to understand this survey:
• Will NOT register you with FEMA
• Does NOT replace your personal insurance claim
• Does not guarantee assistance to your property
• Will be shared with our disaster relief organizations database for relief distribution 

City Roll Off Dumpsters Full


 The City of Vidor's roll-off dumpsters are full as of Saturday afternoon. Hopefully, we will be open again sometime on Monday, September 23 at which time we anticipate having a dumpster available for spoiled food also.

On Monday, we will service Monday's normal route but also try to service Friday's route as the water allows.

If your residential container is missing, please report it to City Hall at 409-769-5473.

FEMA Debris Removal Guidelines


Orange County, City of Orange, City of Vidor, City West Orange, City of Pinehurst, City of Bridge City, Rose City and Pine Forest officials are advising as citizens begin to clean up their properties please be aware of how debris should be placed for pick up. 

Vidor Public Library Closed Until Further Notice


The Vidor Public Library sustained water damage due to storm Imelda.

We will be closed until further notice. 

At this time please hold off returning library items. 

Please be patient as we gather more information in the coming days. 

Curfew In Effect 10pm - 6am


The City of Vidor has instituted a curfew from 10:00 PM until 6:00 AM due to the extensive flooding within our community effective Thursday, September 19, 2019.

We ask that no one attempt to drive on the roadway during this time period due to the inability to estimate the depth of the water and danger of drowning.
