Update from Emergency Operations Center (Sunday 14th 3pm)
As of Sunday afternoon, 10 Bryan-College Station churches were housing less than 2,000 evacuees who fled Hurricane Ike. Busloads have been departing all afternoon, so it is difficult for officials to get an accurate head count.
The shelters that remain open have reached capacity, and evacuees seeking temporary shelter are being asked to continue on to Dallas, emergency management officials said Sunday.
Classes will resume Monday morning at local schools.
Officials in the Community Emergency Operations Center were working Sunday to assess needs of the counties that surround Brazos, and assisting in securing supplies for those areas.
The number to the Community Emergency Operations Center is (979) 458-8750.
