Emergency Information on IKE
FOR IKE

ANGLETON, TX -- Officials in Brazoria County are beginning plans to evacuate special needs residents in advance of Hurricane Ike.

Based on information about Hurricane Ike that is now available to the Brazoria County Emergency Management Office, evacuation of special needs residents is scheduled for Wednesday morning unless the expected track of the hurricane veers away from this area of the coast.
In an announcement made around noon Monday, K.R. "Doc" Adams, the county's Emergency Management coordinator, said it appeared that the county may be struck by a catastrophic storm. If this prediction continues until Wednesday, evacuation of special needs residents will begin that morning, with three pick-up sites for those who need transportation at three sites in Brazoria County. Time of departure will be announced later.
