Separated Families

by Jessica Cervantez

Bus loads of evacuees continue to head to East Texas. Right now, 180 evacuees are at the Nacogdoches Recreation Center.

Others have been spread out to local churches. Many of them still don't know where the rest of their family is, or if they even made it. And they don't have any way to contact them.

One New Orleans evacuee says his whole family was separated.

Steve Gabriel said, "They split the whole family up. Some went to Houston, some ended up in Memphis, and I haven't talked to any of them."
