A center for residents fleeing Hurricane Harvey was flooded with water Tuesday night, and so far plans for another evacuation have not been set yet, according to Houston's KHOU.com.
Southeast Texas residents sought refuge from the Category 4 hurricane at the Robert A. "Bob" Bowers Civic Center in Port Arthur, the website reported. One evacuee told KHOU.com, an affiliate of CBS, that the shelter began to flood with water around 8 p.m. CT Tuesday, and the floor of the center was flooded within 20 minutes.
Officials announced an evacuation of the shelter on Wednesday morning, KHOU.com reported, but evacuees have only been moved up — to the bleachers in the center's gymnasium — and not out of the building as of yet.
The Weather Channel said evacuees will be moved to the Carl A. Parker Multipurpose Center on the campus of Lamar State College-Port Arthur, about five miles south of the Bob Bowers center, but that they have not yet been moved.
The college's public information coordinator, Gerry Dickert, told CNBC that he and Athletic Director Scott Street are both trapped in their homes from flooding and cannot assist evacuees at the Carl Parker Center.
"I'm only about three miles away from the college campus, but we're in a place that has been inundated," Dickert said.
David Roth, a meteorologist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said rainfall totals from the Beaumont-Port Arthur area appear "to exceed anything reported around Houston within 24 hours during Harvey's passage," The Associated Press reported.
Neither the Bob Bowers Civic Center nor the Carl Parker Center could be reached by phone in time for this report's publication.
