Evacuee comfort center set up at rest area near Van

All you have to do is head to I-20 to see evacuees are making their way north. TXDOT officials say there has been a steady flow of cars all day traveling westbound on I-20 and Highway 69.

They ask east Texans to keep those lanes clear if possible for those trying to evacuate.

TXDOT has set up an evacuee comfort center at the rest area near Van.  Volunteers are there directing people where to go.

An alternate route on I-20 has also been made in Longview to help drivers avoid a construction site near Highway 31.

TXDOT says drivers can exit off I-20 at Loop 281 and then return to the interstate on Highway 31.
