Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu's visit to a Shreveport shelter prompted some safety changes.
After residents complained of poor conditions and safety concerns at Jewella Road, shelter organizers are working to fix the issues -- and trying to boost morale.
After touring the facilities, Landrieu said the conditions are much better at the shelters tare than they were after Hurricane Katrina.
But the democrat acknowledges there are some complaints--especially about the bathrooms.
Organizers say at this point, they're not only worried about basic food and shelter, but also about morale.
People are getting stir crazy. To combat restlessness, organizers are trying to come up with fun activities for everyone.
They had a cook-out and ice cream sundaes today.They're trying to bring a bouncy house for the children and arrange for them to visit the Caddo Sheriff's Safety Town.
Shelter organizers are also working with the Caddo School Board to
make it possible for the students to attend local classes until they can return to their home district.
