State tourism department helping with hotel rooms

Posted: Updated:

    As some people from the gulf coast clear out in advance of Isaac, the state tourism department is helping them find available hotel rooms.

    It's set up a toll-free phone number for people looking for a place to stay.  It's 1-800-ALABAMA, or 1-800-252-2262.

    The tourism department says rooms are filling up fast for Tuesday night- but there's still space in Tuscaloosa and Birmingham.
