ContactRelief is making public its Hurricane Harvey recommendations made to subscribers Saturday, September 9th, to resume contact with consumers in additional Texas zip codes while continuing to suspend contact for certain counties and zip codes heavily affected by the storm including certain zip codes in the Houston and Beaumont area. To obtain the list of current zip code suspensions, see the information below.

Although we are recommending that you resume contact in many regions in Texas, we caution that there is extensive damage from high winds and flooding in many counties. Within a county, there can be areas unaffected and areas that were devastated. We have used a variety of sources to identify areas of extensive damage, current flooding, or standing evacuation orders. We are recommending continued contact suspension at the zip code level for areas where flooding has only recently abated. See our previous advice for using skills based routing to adapt your customer experience to the customer situation in light of Hurricane Harvey.

A previous recommendation to suspended contact remains in force for Texas counties: Aransas, Calhoun.

A previous recommendation to resume contact remains in force for Texas counties: Angelina, Atascosa, Austin, Bastrop, Bee, Bexar, Brooks, Caldwell, Cameron, Colorado, Comal, DeWitt, Duval, Fayette, Gonzales, Guadalupe, Hays, Hidalgo, Houston, Jackson, Jim Wells, Karnes, Kenedy, Kleberg, Lavaca, Liberty, Live Oak, McMullen, Orange, Trinity, Waller, Wharton, Willacy, and Wilson. Certain zip codes are excluded.

A previous recommendation to resume contact remains in force for Louisiana parishes: Assumption, Cameron, Iberia, Jefferson, Lafourche, Plaquemines, St.Martin, St.Mary, Terrebonne.
