Longview Shelter Closes, Evacuees Moved

Longview's Maude Cobb Activity Center has been closed as a Red Cross shelter to make way for upcoming events. The remaining 152 evacuees under Red Cross care are now being housed in the Fairgrounds Exposition Center in Longview.

Evacuees say the transition to a new shelter has been smooth. The Expo center will serve as the Red Cross facility until all of the evacuees are placed in permanent or temporary housing.
