ContactRelief is making public a recommendation made to subscribers Friday, September 1st, to resume contact with consumers in additional Texas counties.

Contact should be resumed today for these Texas counties: Aransas, Goliad, Hardin, Jasper, Newton, Nueces, Polk, Refugio, SanPatricio, Tyler.

Contact should be resumed today for these Louisiana parishes: Acadia, Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Evangeline, Jefferson Davis, Lafayette, Rapides, St.Landry, Vermilion, Vernon.

A previous recommendation to suspended contact remains in force for Louisiana parishes: Cameron.

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, JimWells, Karnes, Kenedy, Kleberg, Lavaca, LiveOak, McMullen, Trinity, Waller, Wharton, Willacy, and Wilson.

Although we have significantly reduced the land area with contact suspension recommendations, the population affected is still considerable at just over 6 million people. This is because the Houston metropolitan area, as well as the Beaumont, TX area, are well populated, and much of the area is still under evacuation orders or has received significant damage.

ContactRelief's On-going Response to Hurricane Harvey

Several companies have requested our Excel formatted daily listing of affected zip codes which we are offering free of charge during this record setting disaster event. If you would like to receive our daily listings with no obligation to license, please visit us at www.contactrelief.com. Under the "Contact Us" tab, please indicate the email addresses you would like the listings sent to in the "Comments" section.

Over the next few days, we will be eliminating our contact suspension recommendations by county and zeroing in on the areas actually impacted by Hurricane Harvey. For example, we can locate areas bordering flooded rivers by geocoding the impacted areas and determining the zip codes surrounding those areas. By isolating our clients' customers to those with a high probability of suffering actual damage, our clients may also elect to proactively communicate with their consumers in the affected regions via text, email, or on-line.
