All evacuations have been canceled in Fort Bend County.


All residents previously impacted by mandatory and voluntary evacuation orders in Fort Bend County can now return to their homes.

While there is still high water present in some places, authorities say water levels at local rivers and reservoirs have gone down such that they no longer pose a threat.

"We want you to know that we're right here with you and we are doing everything we can to help you get the care you need, get back into your home, and get assistance from FEMA. Remember, there are still hazards out there, so be careful and keep your family safe," Fort Bend County Judge Robert Hebert said.

At one point, the evacuation orders covered an estimated 50,000 households.
