Flood Victims Given New Shelter in Prince William County

More than 100 people left homeless by last week's flooding in Prince William County were given a new place to stay on Friday -- just as the county closed their current shelter.

An emergency shelter set up for residents in Prince William County closed Friday at 5 p.m.  

The shelter at the First Mount Zion Baptist Church was for those displaced by recent flooding.  Originally, they were sheltered at the Dale City Rec Center, but last week those who still needed assistance were moved to the church.

More than 70 people were displaced after high water from Tropical Storm Lee damaged the Holly Acres Mobile Home Park.

The Red Cross said everyone who was using the shelter has found temporary or permanent housing.
