A shelter in Monticello is reopening at 4 p.m. Wednesday at the Best Western Plus Brandywine Inn & Suites at 304 S. 6th St.

In Benton County, people can find shelter at the Boswell Fire Station at 307 W. North St.

Spokesperson Wendy Starr says the group has a shelter ready in Delphi, although it's currently on standby. That means it's not in use right now, but it's ready to go if more people evacuate or lose power.  The shelter is in the gymnasium of The Sanctuary Pentecostal Church at 401 E. Monroe St.

If you have any questions for the American Red Cross, you can call 765-742-6975.

EMA Director for White County, Roberta Yerk, says there are evacuations in Buffalo on Chapman Drive and Maple Bend. There are also evacuations in Monticello on Diamond Point Court and Brandywine.
