Assistance center opens for Ike evacuees

Beginning tomorrow, PATH, or People Attempting To Help, will offer a one-stop assistance center for evacuees still staying in East Texas.

The center is at 2235 West Gentry in Tyler.

There, evacuees can register for FEMA assistance, emergency food stamps, and disaster unemployment. However, PATH officials say evacuees will not be able to get gas money to return home.

The center will be open from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM from tomorrow through Saturday, October 4th.
