CORRECTION: No return date set

There is no specific date set by authorities for when people can begin to return to Lake Charles and the rest of Calcasieu Parish.

A previous post incorrectly suggested that people would be allowed back beginning Oct. 3. That post has been removed.

No date has been set for returning. The challenge of major power restoration is the reason.

"Officials" would do well to understand it's not so easy for us to stay away. Sure, they would like no one there until all the debris is gone, all the power is on, all the water and sewer systems are running.

Some of us have our own wells and sewer systems and enough generator and gas capacity to return and start the cleanup process. Why should we be forced to keep sending money to live in hotels far away when we can go back?
