Alabama's First Lady Visits Shelters

By Alabama Public Radio

Montgomery, AL – The American Red Cross reports more than 53-hundred storm evacuees are staying in 49 Red Cross shelters in the state. Governor Bob Riley estimates the total evacuee numbers in Alabama could be between 10 and 30-thousand. His wife, First Lady Patsy Riley, is planning to visit some of those people Wednesday. She's expected to meet storm victims staying at shelters in Tuscaloosa, Vance and Demopolis. She'll be at the University of Alabama recreation center Wednesday at 10 A-M. She'll visit evacuees staying at the Mercedes-Benz training center in Vance at one P-M. She'll wrap up the day's tours with a three o'clock visit to the First Baptist Church of Demopolis.
