Houston Transtar, Mayor Annise Parker and Ed Harris County Judge Emmett talked about the blizzard at a news conference in Houston TranStar earlier today with Parker telling reporters he is the best for the citizens to stay out of the road and stay home.
“We urge people if you do not get on the road, stay on the road. Once the mud or snow or freezing overnight stays frozen, the shuttle tomorrow can be very problematic. C is just better if you do not get on the road and you do not enter, “said the mayor, according to the Houston Chronicle.
All offices of the University will be closed until Monday, according to the latest alert Notification University.
As a snowstorm descended on the city earlier today and with icy roads planned, university officials completed all academic activities to 16 hours to allow the safe transit home for the campus community. At 19 hours, the administration has extended the class cancellations through Friday; the school should open its doors again on Monday.
The class cancellations came after the National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning at 3:52 p.m. for southern Texas.
“A higher level storm system approaching from the west will combine with increasing moisture and cold temperatures in the lower atmosphere to produce a mixture of light snow, sleet and freezing rain in southeastern Texas “according to the alert, which expires Friday at 12 o’clock, when the storm should pass.
In response to questions following a news conference this afternoon weather in Houston Transtar, Parker has denied trying to conceal the images public.
“We never said that the public should not see this video,” the mayor said. “We simply said that we thought the most appropriate place they see for the first time would be before a court of law, when these agents are brought to justice. The frustration is that by releasing this video it has the possibility of provoking a strong trial to be moved out of Harris County, and we do not want anything to jeopardize the prosecution of these officers. “Parker said she also believes the odds of officers being held accountable for their actions decreases if the trial is moved out of Harris County.
“The public has every right to know this information, and I resent any implication that we tried to hide the tape,” said Parker. “We did everything we were supposed to do when we received the tape. We have studied. We have turned this investigation into the District Attorney. We have supported the district attorney and we fired the officers. We do not believe that the jurors here would be contaminated because they were afraid that there would an effort to move the trial away from Harris County. “Wednesday evening, Parker issued a statement saying in part that whoever posted the video should be pursued, but recanted, saying it is not her to tell whether someone should be charged. She made the statement after watching the 10 o’clock news and see Quanell X acquired images as evidence in a separate trial.
