Rock Port Shelter

The dangerous heat has forced 6 evacuees from Missouri River Flooding into a Red Cross Shelter now open in Rockport.

That location has been on standby, but the extreme weather has turned camping enthusiasts who were driven from their home to request the shelter be opened. Red Cross executive director Kevin Kirby says several others in the region are ready to be activated, and his staff is working with evacuees on long-term plans.
