As evacuees are beginning to find their own homes, shelters are now facing different needs.
Finding a home is the next step for many of the evacuees. That means, they now have different needs.
Laura Popel, the shelter director, said, "They are going back home or finding new homes and they are needing suitcases and luggage for all their belongings."
Evacuees who haven't been able to contact FEMA, are encouraged to keep trying. There is a new FEMA number available 1-800-525-0321. FEMA reps have also been onsite at East Texas shelters offering individual help.
No ones knows exactly how much money each family will receive from FEMA. It depends on their circumstances.
