Lakewood Church is open to anyone who needs assistance. 

As a flooding emergency has hit across the Houston area, many people have found themselves trapped by floodwaters with nowhere to go.

Authorities are encouraging residents to shelter in place and stay off the roadways. For those who are already trapped out of their homes, Gallery Furniture at 6006 North Fwy. has opened its doors as a makeshift shelter.

Owner Jim McIngvale, well-known as Mattress Mack, has a history of service to the community. Gallery Furniture housed Hurricane Harvey victims for several days during the historic flood event.

Lakewood Church is also open for flood victims at 3700 SW Fwy.

 

In addition, Harris County officials have opened the following shelter locations:

  • Humble First Assembly of God Church, located at 1915 FM 1960 Bypass, Humble
