Parish readies for evacuees
Julie Roberts, gate supervisor at Lincoln Parish Park, said she is referring people to an Oak Grove RV park, to the town of Simsboro and anywhere else she can find them a spot because the park has already filled. James Ramsaur, director of the parish park, said Oak Grove has 155 spaces available and 30 50-amp water and sewage sites.
Ruston’s Fairfield Inn and Suites and Holiday Inn are completely booked, mostly with evacuees. Yvette Moss, Hampton Inn’s general manager, said the hotel is full to capacity with about 80 percent of rooms being reserved by evacuees.
