Mayor debunks social media post about Hurricane Harvey

- We want to debunk a myth that has been alarming people on social media. It's a post that alleges a city councilman told someone the storm is three times worse than what local TV stations are reporting. Supposedly we are withholding information from the public because we don't want a panic and everyone trying to evacuate at the same time. There was also a similar post supposedly involving county officials as well. Officials are warning residents not to believe or spread the false information. Mayor Sylvester Turner and Vice Mayor Jerry Davis are here to debunk the rumor.
