The Baton Rouge River Center provided a safe home for thousands of people stranded due to the recent flooding in Louisiana.
“The arena arranged to sleep more than a thousand people with resources on standby including a list that includes a makeshift hospital thanks to doctors and nurses who saw a need and stepped up,” Mark Armstrong reported for WGNO.
More than 2,800 residents remain in shelters, and an estimated 60,000 homes were damaged. The Advocate offered a great resource for those seeking to help flood victims.
