A week after the flooding began, things are quieter at George R. Brown Convention Center this morning.

After the Red Cross took on nearly 10,000 flood victims seeking shelter, they are now caring for about 1,500 people downtown.

Officials said the shelter population has dipped significantly, as some moved in with family members offering rooms. Others have moved into extended stay hotels. Some were even able to move back to their own homes.

Two churches are hoping to hold worship services at the shelter this morning.

Meanwhile, people taking shelter here are getting their day started, hoping to continue putting together the pieces after the devastating floods that hit Houston.

All of these are sure signs of a city on the road to recovery.
