Hanna And Ike Unlikely To Send Evacuees To Louisville

Tropical Storm Hanna is headed for the East Coast. But it’s unlikely any evacuees will be coming to Louisville.When Hurricane Gustav took aim at New Orleans, nearly 1,500 Gulf Coast evacuees were sent to Louisville to avoid the storm and subsequent flooding. But there are shelters that are closer to the East Coast than Louisville, and that’s most likely where any Hanna evacuees will go.Logan McCulloch with Louisville’s chapter of the American Red Cross has been working with Gustav evacuees. He says he’s more concerned with getting them home than he is with hosting new guests.“I know that they’re working on that right now at the state EOC – the emergency operations folks and local folks are working with national authorities to expedite that schedule, but no word yet," says McCulloch.Hanna is expected to hit South Carolina late tonight and move up the coast this weekend.
