Red Cross Shelter

Many hotels in Dothan are already completely booked for the next few days because of Hurricane Katrina and some evacuees are struggling to find vacancies.

Many Dothan hotels have to turn down evacuees because of no availability.

But, for those evacuees who are not having any luck booking a hotel room, the Red Cross opened the Westgate shelter at 7:00 o'clock Sunday night.

The local Red Cross Chapter has already sent volunteers to assist people in Tallahassee and Montgomery and plan to send even more if needed
