Monroe, LA – More than a half million people displaced by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita remain in hotels, motels, and shelters. New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin crisscrossed the state this week visiting evacuees still staying in Red Cross shelters. One of his stops was at the Community Residential Center in Monroe, Louisiana. The mayor took questions from evacuees and encouraged people to come home to New Orleans. K-C-U-R'S Maria Carter was there and has this report.
