Plans for additional evacuees on hold

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Plans to transfer Hurricane Katrina evacuees from Texas to other states including Oklahoma have been put on hold because many of these people do not want to leave.

States have been notified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency not to expect additional evacuees to be transferred from Texas.

Many prefer to remain in Texas while they resolve issues about their homes, jobs and family.

There is still a chance some may be sent directly from New Orleans to other states. An estimated 10-thousand people remain in New Orleans.
