IT’S NOT TIME TO GO HOME TO EAST TEAXAS JUST YET!

MESSAGE FROM TEXAS STATE POLICE!

Residents of the Orange area who have evacuated are being asked to stay out of the area for now.

The area has suffered a great deal of damage, power is out and DPS troopers and other first responders are still performing search and rescue missions.

Staying out of the area until roads have been cleared and the area has been secured is safest for all concerned.
