My son is at low and they were flooded so I expect Med was also. Initially he said he could tell Med was dark, as were they, but power (except A/C), phones and email are now working. Porta potties are being brought in because of the water situation in Beaumont.

Low did have water coming in on the first floor and with toilets backing up, it is horrendous. They started pouring water from rain runoff down the toilets just to get them to flush. Porta potties are being brought in because of the malfunctioning Beaumont water system.

That's what the Beaumont police department told me but after communicating with my hubby, he tells me that they still have no water. They had no light (power) for 2 days. That he'd look outside and it looked like they were in the middle of a lake. Yes, my hubby says that yes they got flooded.

To everyone who is worried about their loved ones, I pray for their safety and for our peace. We must all stay encouraged and keep each other informed as much as possible. Still no word on Medium.

i tried calling the prison this morning to find out for the medium, it actually rings now and you can select the extension you want but no one answered, but i am here in england so the time difference might be the issue for now as its only 5.30am over there. but at least its up and running instead of a busy tone all week

I have been watching the news for days now...constant reporting of evacuations, rescues, and utter destruction and my heart goes out to all the people who are affected by it. HOWEVER, no one is reporting on the 5000+ men trapped inside the federal prison complex. They are even making great efforts to save people's pets (which I commend) but no efforts to helping inmates.

You CANNOT trust what the BOP is reporting. They tried to cover up what went on during Hurricane Rita in 2005 and they will do the same with Harvey. Harvey is worse than Rita! The Texas Dept. of Criminal Justice evacuated 6,000 inmates from 5 of their prison facilities and yet the BOP deems it unnecessary to do the same for their federal inmates.

My husband is in the USP and I am in CA worried sick like all of you, desperately trying to get word on his well being. I don't mean to pour gas on the fire here, but there should be grave concern for what's REALLY going on in there. The rest of the world could care less about the inmates' dire situation and suffering. There is no accountability within the BOP system so we, their loved ones, are hog-tied to do anything about it.

To get an idea of what's probably happening, read this article written by an inmate in the USP who went through Hurricane Rita. I doubt that the BOP learned from that experience and are doing anything differently this time. There was a lawsuit filed for the mishandling and mistreatment of the inmates, but, of course, it was dismissed (see next link). It sickens me that our loved ones are treated less than animals.

INMATE LIVES MATTER TOO!!

Because the bop is covering their own butt & lying to us. Just like they did to the families in 2008

The phones may be operational, however, if they are on lockdown, they can't use them. What good is that for them?!

The Bop is a joke I actually contacted the Washington DC headquarters and spoke to somebody over there and gave them an earful tell them what information I was getting and that that the low had Services as of yesterday that the medium facility wasn't doing so great and that we wanted to know how our loved ones were doing she was so upset and mad that she got loud with me on the phone and I told her that just because they're prisoners doesn't mean that they can treat them any less different or any less Humane. I told her that once I was able to speak to my loved one I was going to make sure and verify that their life was not put in Jeopardy or their safety. I also told her that I understand that the reason why they would possibly evacuate is only for the reason if there was structural damage I told her that in this case they are putting lives and risk and that I hope to God that my loved one was not one of those lives put in Risk because they could and possibly potentially be repercussions as far as lawsuits. The lady who I spoke to in Washington DC was pretty upset when I got done speaking to her and then a couple hours later they update their website with the new update but then again we still don't have any communication with any of the inmates in the medium unless somebody else is getting communication from from their loved ones and the medium facility? if you are please let us know I need some peace of mind here!!

I don't care about the institution I care about the people that are inside that Institution, for crying out loud!!!!!
