Transcript for Harvey evacuees seek shelter at Houston convention center
many of those flooding victims as the rain is till coming down evacuated their homes. They sought shelter at the Houston convention center lining up overnight just to get some dry clothes. ABC's Victor Oquendo was there with the latest on what's happened there this morning. Victor, good morning. Reporter: Good morning, Amy. After they leave their hope has is the first room they come to inside the convention center for the dry clothes. The food and the water. More than 2500 people have already come through here. A lot of them are actually in a separate area with cots finally getting some much needed rest as the red cross puts it, this is their home now so you can think of this area as their living room. We were here, we watched as people came in in droves so many of them being dropped off on the back of city dump trucks taking with them only what they could carry. The red cross says they're set up here inside the convention center to take as many as 5,000 people. They're halfway there and with more evacuations, more rain in the forecast, they're expecting the numbers here to grow. They show up hungry, tired, some in need of medical attention, some with pets. They're in a separate area for them. The red cross says they will be here for as long as they're needed. Amy. So many incredible volunteers throughout this catastrophe. Victor Oquendo, thank you.
