(KSL News) -- Hundreds of people fleeing from Hurricane Rita may end up in Utah.

Today Governor Huntsman said FEMA called several days ago to ask if the state would be able to accommodate more evacuees.

Gov. Huntsman: "We have probably just over a hundred evacuees at Camp Williams. We have the infrastructure still in place and the ability to serve many, should we be called upon."

The Governor said he has already spoke to the Governor of Texas and offered the state's help. More will be known about evacuation plans once the storm's trajectory becomes clearer.
