Interview with a Red Cross Shelter administrator, stating that residents evacuating should bring a breakfast, a light lunch, and all medications needed, but that pets aren't allowed by law. He asks that residents do not go to sleep until an escape from their house was provided, watch all news bulletins, and to get out of their homes by nightfall. Two interviews follow with residents in the shelter, asking: when they arrived at the shelter; how many people are in their family; what was left at home; and how long did they expect to stay.
