KODE: Evacuees headed toward Missouri

Some evacuees leaving the Gulf area to escape from Hurricane Gustav will wind up in Missouri, according to a KODE report and some could be headed toward this corner of the state:

Authorities tell KODE tonight that Missouri and Louisiana are working on an agreement that could bring up to five thousand evacuees to the Show Me State. Six hundred of the storm victims could be taken to a Springfield shelter. Officials say Carthage, Joplin and Neosho could take an additional four hundred evacuees if the other shelters become crowded.
