Returning Evacuees Can Call TxDOT Number for Road Conditions
Effort to Get Medical Personnel, Fuel into Impacted Areas Continues
Gov. Rick Perry today announced that the Texas Department of Transportation can provide coastal evacuees information on road conditions in Texas if they call a 1-800 number.
"As we begin the staggered return plan, Texans can find out the latest information on road conditions by dialing 1-800-452-9292," Perry said. "Our effort remains focused on restocking impacted areas with fuel, food and water. We ask Texans to continue to be patient because of the sheer size of this re-supply effort."
Perry added that the Texas National Guard has commenced a massive airlift effort to return medical personnel to areas impacted by Hurricane Rita. The state is also working to create a fuel distribution point at Ford Park Center in Beaumont.
