City of Galveston implements nightly curfews

Galveston, TX – August 25, 2020 – The City of Galveston has implemented a series of curfews over the next three nights for the protection of residents and their property during Hurricane Laura.

Galveston Mayor Pro Tem Craig Brown signed the order Tuesday implementing the curfew, which prevents people from being on public streets or right-of-way and begins at 10 p.m. tonight. The only legitimate reason for a person to be on the roads is to leave the island as part of the evacuation for Hurricane Laura.

Any person found on the public right of way and not evacuating may be stopped by law enforcement and subject to a misdemeanor and an up to $1,000 fine. The curfew is intended to protect Galveston residents and their property from any potential looting.

It shall be unlawful for any person, without proper authority, to be upon the public streets or rights-of-way located within the City of Galveston on the following days between the designated hours:

Tuesday, August 25 at 10:00 pm until Wednesday, August 26 at 6:00 am;

Wednesday, August 26 at 8:00 pm until Thursday, August 27 at 6:00 am;

Thursday, August 27 at 8:00 pm until Friday, August 28 at 6:00 am.
