The shelter set up for Harvey evacuees at NRG Center is scheduled to close this Saturday.

On Thursday night, there were approximately 780 people left at the shelter, according to BakerRipley, the non-profit organization that is managing it.

Those who don’t have any other options are being moved to another shelter the American Red Cross has set up at Greenspoint Mall, north of downtown Houston.
