Longview Announces Evacuee Status

Longview mayor Jay Dean says the city has a plan to help evacuees get their lives back together. Today he outlined an organizational chart on how Longview will coordinate food, shelter and job placement in the days to come. Today Dean says the priority is housing and monetary donations.
 
"The biggest thing you can do is bring your cash donations, which go right to the evacuees and help out in the effort, we also ask for the patience of the people willing to help, our volunteers" said Dean.
 
Dean says the city will have daily updates on its plan the rest of this week.
