ST. MARY PARISH — Ida evacuees are still being sheltered after the storm which made landfall last month in Louisiana. Many of those evacuees are scattered across the state, including in Acadiana.

In Patterson, evacuees who have been sheltering at the civic center remain at that location. City officials continue to receive help in feeding those displaced.

Last week, KATC spoke to those who had evacuated Ida and were sheltered at the civic center. Many evacuees hope they would soon be able to return home.
