Gary Thomas, originally from Dallas, talks with his traveling partner from Florida at the emergency shelter set up at the Missouri United Methodist Church of Columbia on Tuesday night. They were driving through town when their car broke down earlier in the day and found a volunteer at the church who told them about the shelter. "We are glad to be here," Thomas' friend said.
