If your loved one is missing after attending the Astroworld festival, you are welcome to visit the lodge at 8686 Kirby for additional information.
HOUSTON – A heartbreaking scene unfolded in Houston early Saturday as households learned of the Astroworld festival tragedy that left as many as eight dead and dozens injured.
In the chaos that erupted during Travis Scott’s live performance on Friday night, emergency crews rushed to reach the unconscious victims as various spectators attempted to help them. Many were rushed to hospital without identification or means of contacting their families.
The victims were as young as 10 years earlier, according to Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo.

During an early morning briefing, Houston Fire Chief Sam Pena and Police Chief Troy Finner said households with loved ones missing should come to the Wyndham Hotel Wingate at 8686 Kirby, near Loop 610.
Counselors may be available at the reunification center alongside HFD and HPD staff to assist households.
Finner said it is too quick to blame what has become spurious and that the main priority is taking good care of households.
“We have to mourn these families right now,” Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said. “Everyone in our city, pray for these families and we have to get out of this. “
At least two dozen people have been rushed to hospitals in Houston, many with ongoing CPR. More than 300 others were treated at a local hospital organized on the competition.
