There are 682 residents in the nine Harrison County shelters operated by the American Red Cross, according to Joshua Joachim.
"There are a lot of people showing up, and we're getting them checked in," he said.
The shelters that have opened have a capacity of about 5,000. There are lines at some of the shelters still trying to get checked in. Typically, Joachim said, the crowds start to thin out around 10 p.m.
