U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services closed its Houston Application Support Centers and Asylum office Monday because of flooding.

Applicants with appointments should check the agency’s rescheduling page to determine if their appointments will automatically be rescheduled or if they need to take steps to reschedule them.

The Houston area experienced more than a foot of rain Monday, causing floods and power outages as well as school closures and suspension of public transit services. More rain is predicted in coming days. Today’s USCIS announcement did not include a reopen date, but USCIS regularly provides updates regarding office closings here.
