Civic Center shelter draws few

Lake Charles Civic Center director Joe Toups said Thursday there were about 18 to 20 area residents who used the emergency shelter.

The shelter was set up Wednesday inside the Civic Center’s James Sudduth Coliseum. It was closed up by 11 a.m. Thursday.

“Some of the people who showed up were afraid to stay in their FEMA trailers,” Toups said.

He said the group in the shelter consisted of both Lake Charles and Cameron residents.
