Report on Refugees: Texas

My friend down in Texas says that refugees are stranded on the side of I 10 and in Walmart parking lots. It seems they had come over the weekend to wait out the storm, staying in hotel rooms, but now people are running out of money and have no place to go. Reports indicate that people are being turned away from the Astro Dome because it is reserved for evacuees of the Super Drome.

She indicates that there are other shelters to go to, but communication is sketchy and people are not familiar with the area.

Need people to get on radio stations and report locations and directions. Pass the word. May also need volunteers to find these folks and help direct them to a shelter.
