Texas Motor Speedway opened one of its campgrounds for evacuees at no cost, a report said.
In Louisiana, Hurricane Ida caused more than 1,000,000 people to lose power.
High-water trucks, boats, helicopters, and rescuers brought hundreds of flood-damaged people to safety Monday. They also planned to go door-to-door in difficult-hit areas to ensure everyone was OK.
Many areas were also experiencing water problems. 18 water systems were affected, affecting more than 312,000 people. Another 14 systems, affecting 329,000 people, were also under boil water advisories.
Many have fled Texas to escape the destruction.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by Hurricane Ida. We want to make sure that they have a safe place and do everything we can to help,” said Rob Ramage, Texas Motor Speedway Senior Vice President/general manager.
The campground can be found off Highway 114 just south of Lone Star Kartpark. The directions will be posted. Evacuees will also have access to a nearby bathroom/restroom.
