Austin Sets Up Shelters
Austin Sets Up Shelters - (AUSTIN) -- If there are any Y-two-K problems, the city of Austin is will be ready. City Parks and Recreation Department officials are converting two recreation centers and a church into emergency shelters. One of the shelters will be open on New Year's Eve as a safe house for anyone who feels overwhelmed by potential Y-two-K fears. The city will also open a non-emergency hotline at four o'clock tomorrow afternoon. The public is invited to call 974-7777 tomorrow for more information on area shelters.
Translation: They are also opening up a looney-bin. All guests will be finger printed and photographed.
