Katrina evacuees found shelter, relief in Baton Rouge diocese

 | 

Ten years later the memories still linger for Carol Spruell, as if they happened yesterday but perhaps were a lifetime ago.

She remembers the chaos, despair, uncertainty and the cries for help from so many and workweeks that had no end in the days and months following Hurricane Katrina. She also remembers the lines, droves of desperate people who had lost everything in Katrina's floodwater, who were seeking any modicum of relief, whether it was articles of clothing, a bus ticket to a relative's house outside of the area or assistance in finding a place to live.
