The Red Cross shelter in Phenix City closed Wednesday afternoon, while the one in Columbus remained open.
There were about 100 people being housed at Calvary Christian School on Old Moon Road Wednesday evening, said West Central Georgia Red Cross chapter spokesperson Mitzi Oxford. All of the evacuees were from Louisiana.
"We think 15 to 20 of them may be leaving in the morning," Oxford said. "But the problem is, from everything I have heard, if they go back there is no power and they are being encouraged not to stay."
The Phenix City shelter at Chattahoochee Valley Community College closed Wednesday about 2:30 p.m. At the peak, the shelter, part of a statewide network operated in Alabama's two-year college system, housed 30 people, said CVCC Dean of Students David Hodge.

The shelter served about 35 evacuees from Hurricane Gustuv.
Some who were staying at local churches or motels ate at the Red Cross shelter, which was in the CVCC gym.
As the Gustav operation winds down, Hurricane Hanna poses a threat to coastal Georgia.
The hurricane is several days away from making landfall. If Hanna forces an evacuation of the Georgia coast, most of those fleeing the storm will not be sent this way, Oxford said.
"We have been taken off the permanent and alternative routes for Hanna because of the Gustav operation," Oxford said.
Instead, evacuees will be sent to northeast Georgia, Tennessee and the Carolinas.
"If they evacuate the coast it doesn't mean we won't get any," Oxford said. "We just won't get the bus loads."
