Longview Evacuee Shelter Closes

The last of the shelters opened in Longview to house hurricane evacuees, is now officially closed. The fairgrounds exposition center, which hosted hundreds of evacuees just 2 weeks ago, is now empty. All the cots and blankets are now being packed away for use during any future crisis.

The remaining 19 evacuees have been moved to nearby hotels, and their "waiting game" continues for buses to take them home.
