ALBANY, GA (WALB) -Officials closed Dougherty County's one emergency shelter Friday morning.

12-people took refuge at Beattie Road Church of Christ overnight.

Most of them came in early this morning from the Hancock Road area.

The Red Cross set up cots and had food and medicine ready. They packed up and closed about 11 A-M.

Dougherty DFACS Case Manager Jennifer Quaglietta said "We had 3 people come in this morning. And we have one person still here. So the Red Cross has decided to shut the shelter down, because it's not being used."

County E-M-A officials shut down their emergency weather hotline phone center today at 5 o-clock.
