Partnerships form to help evacuees find shelter, food in Hays County

Good News Notes:

Dozens of evacuees from Hurricane Laura are settling in Hays County, for now.

KXAN spoke to a hotel owner who says they are sold out of rooms.

Partnerships have also formed to help take care of evacuees in Hays County.

‘We were rushed. They told us to take one bag … We had to move fast,’ says Opirite Asemebo, a freshman at Lamar University in Beaumont.

She is among roughly 70 students who were bussed to Texas State University Tuesday evening.

Asemebo and fellow freshman Victoria Adelagun had never experienced a hurricane evacuation before this.

‘I was nervous at first. I just started packing everything, I didn’t know what was going on,’ Adelagun says.

Even with online classes, Hurricane Laura presents another hurdle.”
