During the Calcasieu Parish OEP meeting at 10:30 a.m. meeting this morning, Calcasieu Police Jury President Kevin Guidry announced that they will be opening up the Burton Coliseum soon as secondary shelter.

The decision was made due to the fact that the Lake Charles Civic Center which opened as a shelter yesterday is at almost capacity Guidry said.

They are anticipated a high number of evacuees from the Southeast Texas area from the Orange, Vidor, Port Arthur and Beaumont areas.

The timing on when the Burton will be open for people is unknown at this time as they are trying to prepare the facility for evacuees.

They said details should be available after the 4:30 OEP briefing so stayed tuned and we will pass that along when we know the shelter will open.
