Kokomo — Within the next hour, the Red Cross is moving its emergency evacuation shelter from the United Way building on Walnut Street to Memorial Gym on Apperson Way.

No pets are allowed at the shelter. Many flood victims are having trouble finding places for their pets to stay overnight. Red Cross officials said many area boarders are not accepting pets at this time or require documentation that the flood victims don’t have with them.
