The Texas General Land Office will be hosting meetings to get input from Valley residents about adding new evacuation routes in the event of a hurricane.

"So members of the community have their option to pick which option is best for them," Elijah Casas said. "That way that they can use these routes to escape these low-lying areas safely, of course, and get to higher ground or shelters."

The state will host two meetings on Tuesday at the Texas A&N University Citrus Center in Weslaco.

The first meeting took place at 9 a.m. and the second meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m.
