September 05, 2005

CAMP WILLIAMS, UTAH*Hurricane Katrina victims who were evacuated to Utah are beginning to find places to stay. So far, 15 evacuees were able to pay for their own transportation to destinations of their choice. More than 80 others have made connection with relatives or friends and efforts are underway to provide transportation to reunite them with those people.

In a plan developed this afternoon, the evacuees who will be leaving Camp Williams will be given $150.00 to the head of household and $75.00 for each dependant. Additionally, the cost of transportation will be provided by the State of Utah, which hopes to be reimbursed by FEMA.

If family members outside of Utah are located in other evacuation centers, every effort will be made to reunite and relocate that family in a location of their choice.
