Gov. Perry: Medical Personnel Needed in Evacuated Areas

Gov. Rick Perry today urged medical personnel who evacuated ahead of Hurricane Rita to return to home as quickly as possible.

"We cannot assure the safety of other citizens until our hospitals and medical facilities have their doctors and nurses back in place," Perry said. "I urge all medical personnel to return to the affected areas as soon as they can do so safely."

The Governor continued to urge other evacuees to follow the state's schedule for returning to the affected areas.
