Albany-- Financial assistance from the Red Cross is now available for evacuees here in South Georgia.

A steady stream of evacuees came to the shelter at Beattie Road Church of Christ Wednesday to sign up for vouchers. Depending on family size, they can get anywhere from $360 to a little more than $1,500. The shelter here got permission Tuesday to begin dispersing money to evacuees.

"It's a transition. Some of them are still in hotels. Hotels cost money. To go out and eat everyday costs money so we are trying to meet their immediate needs," says Dr. Ernest Benson of The Red Cross.

To apply for assistancego to the shelter on Beattie Road. You must have a valid photo ID from an affected state.
