Shelter evacuees in Shreveport play it safe

Cots are ready to be unfolded if needed in LSU Shreveport's Health and Physical Education building gymnasium.

Dell Jones of Avondale and his 10 family members are riding out Hurricane Isaac at the American Red Cross shelter on the LSU Shreveport campus. It's the same shelter his family went to during Katrina. Shelter manager Steve Beyer says he has a good number of volunteers who are working on a rotated schedule. The LSUS shelter can accommodate 700 evacuees. Less than 100 people are currently staying there.
