9-6-05 - While the airlift of Hurricane Katrina refugees out of Texas appeared to be on hold, some evacuees were about to be moved to cruise ships in Galveston.
Planes carrying evacuees had been expected to leave the state Sunday night when the airlift was under the direction of state officials. Texas Gov. Rick Perry said the state's refugee shelters had reached their limit.
Then federal authorities took over the operation and by Monday planes still weren't taking off. At the same time, for the first time in days, there were no buses or planes in the official evacuation effort carrying evacuees into Texas, the governor's office said.
It was unclear when any flights might actually leave.
Federal Emergency Management Agency spokesman Dean Cushman said Monday, "We are not coordinating it as of right now."
