The Bureau of Prisons is updating circumstances at Beaumont FCC on their web site. Luckily, they apparently were prepared and no inmates had to be transferred or were in danger. Although they lost power at different times in the past few days, the backup generator was operational. Here is the latest update:
September 1, 2017 UPDATE: (BOP) – Power has been restored to FCC Beaumont, and generator power is no longer being used. The Inmate Telephone System (ITS) is currently operational. The FCC continues to use its own reserve of water to operate the Complex. There is ample food and bottled water for inmates and staff.
