Baton Rouge River Center reopens after serving as shelter
BATON ROUGE - The Baton Rouge River Center is reopening to the public after serving as a shelter for flood evacuees.
The center will reopen to the public Friday after serving as an emergency shelter for 32 days.
The Red Cross is accommodating remaining evacuees at Celtic Studios.
At the peak following August's devastating floods, about 2,000 people were sheltered at the River Center.
Michael Day, the general manager of the facility, says he and his staff appreciate all the "support and understanding from our clients and patrons during this time."
