Sarah Greer Osborne, League City director of communications and media relations, said the morning of Sept. 14 there was no power on Walker Street, so city facilities, including City Hall, the Helen Hall Library and others, were closed. However, power was restored before 11 a.m., so facilities will reopen by noon. City staff was working out of the Public Safety Building, which has a generator.
League City City Council will meet the evening of Sept. 14 as planned, according to a city press release.
No flooded homes have been reported. The biggest concern besides power outages is downed fences and tree limbs, which is not bad in the grand scheme of things, Osborne said.
The restoration estimate for most customers is by 7 p.m. on Sept. 14, according to Texas New Mexico Power. AmeriWaste will be collecting trash on Sept. 14, but did not start running crews until 11 a.m., and there will be no recycling pickup, according to the League City website.
In Clear Lake, there are several power outages reported between El Dorado Boulevard and Medical Center Boulevard with several more reported across Seabrook and Kemah, according to CenterPoint Energy.
Along the Friendswood and Webster border, outages are widespread as far west as Blackhawk Boulevard to FM 270 on the east side of I-45, according to CenterPoint Energy.
Near the Pearland and Friendswood border, CenterPoint Energy is also reporting multiple outages along Dixie Farm Road and FM 518 south of Pearland Parkway.
In Pearland, those living around Brookside Village, and those east of Manvel Road and as far south as Bailey Road are the ones experiencing the most power outages within city limits, according to CenterPoint Energy.
“We’ve been in direct communication with CenterPoint Energy,” said Jason Wells, Pearland Police Department public information officer. “Unfortunately, they were unable to give an [estimated time for power to be restored], but they’re reporting 21% of Pearland customers [are] without power.”
Pearland did not report any injuries or deaths overnight directly related to Hurricane Nicholas, Wells said. The city was affected the most by the wind, with several traffic lights and subdivisions losing power, he added.
