Storm Recovery: Convoys Carrying Supplies

The Angelina County Exposition Center's parking lots have become a staging area for 18-wheelers carrying supplies to hurricane stricken areas.  You'll also notice a large contingency of Department of Public Safety troopers who are also stationed there.

The troopers are needed to escort the convoys to ensure their safe arrival to the areas that need disaster relief most.  DPS officials say they will be available for as long as they are need and that could be up to another week.
