Astrodome Update

For the safety reasons the Astrodome was closed to new refugees. Around 12,000 are now there. Officials did open up near-by Reliant Center, a large space in the Reliant Arena/Astrodome campus used for shows and conventions. Refugees are temporarily being housed there until they can be taken to other large shelters now being set up in Dallas and San Antonio.

They are currently accepting donations and volunteers. I plan on going down there today.
