CALL 211 FOR HURRICANE EVACUATION INFORMATION

Oklahoma City_State emergency officials say some Hurricane Ike evacuees are arriving in Oklahoma and more are expected.

Department of Emergency Management spokeswoman Michelann Ooten says the department and Oklahoma City officials are working together to operate a shelter in western Oklahoma City.

The shelter is where up to 1,800 Hurricane Gustav evacuees from Louisiana stayed.

Ooten says evacuees needing information should call 211. She says the state Department of Transportation has posted signs on major travel routes with the message about 211.

Ooten says the remnants of Ike are expected to bring heavy rain to the southeastern third of Oklahoma late Saturday and early Sunday.
