Red Cross Hub Adjusting Hours

Long lines at the Red Cross central hub in downtown Lufkin have been reduced to almost nothing.

Though some people are still waiting on debit cards, Red Cross officials are changing operational hours and procedures.

The hub will be closed tomorrow (Sunday) and will no longer be taking walk-ups but instead will be available to evacuees by appointment.

Linette Melter with the Red Cross says, "Beginning Monday…we will no longer be taking people who walk up to the door. We are requesting that people call 936-639-1280."

The Red Cross will begin taking calls at 9:00 a.m. Monday morning.
