Houston Fire Marshall overruled!

They're now allowing those busses "on Astrodome property".. some 20-30 busses.. to unload. The story appears to be that a Harris County judge overruled the Fire Marshall who demanded the Astrodome close its doors. That decision was made based on the number of refugees being housed on the field, but didn't take into account the additional available space throughout the facility. This is very good news, but there's little chance that the Dome is going to end up housing the 25,000 refugees officials claimed. There seems to be ample evidence that there's little communication between emergency officials in Houston and New Orleans.
