St. Charles Parish President Matthew Jewell has announced that the St. Charles Parish EOC will be opening a shelter of last resort for residents whose homes cannot withstand high winds.
Residents in need of a shelter can go to the Edward A. Dufresne Community Center, located at 274 Judge Edward Dufresne Parkway in Luling.
“Residents are responsible for their transportation to and from the shelter. Transportation will not be provided. This is a shelter of last resort and residents are encouraged to work with their family, friends and neighbors before using the parish shelter,” the press release explained. “A cot is the only thing that will be provided, and residents should bring anything they need including food, clothing, bedding and medicine. No contraband or weapons will be allowed and will be confiscated before entering. If you feel your housing is unsafe, pets should not be left behind and can stay with you at the shelter.”
