Lubbock To House 2,000 Evacuees In Four Shelters

2,000 Hurricane Rita evacuees will be housed in at least four Lubbock shelters.

The first 500 will be sent to Reese Technology Center. Then another 300 will be housed at the Lubbock Municipal Coliseum. The Lubbock Memorial Civic Center can hold 500 and the Lubbock Christian University field house can house 300.

Events scheduled for the weekend at the Civic Center will continue but they may be relocated within the facility. The city will continue to secure other shelter space in the next few days.

Meanwhile, 500 beds are already set up at Reese. The evacuees will be staying in the same hangar Katrina survivors were at just two weeks ago.
