Today's Calhoun County AL Katrina News

From press reports:  
     Calhoun County is hosting evacuees from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Some are living in local hotels. Others are housed at the Oxford Civic Center in Oxford. Living space seems to be holding. Currently the Civic Center houses 40 with room for 60 more. The number fluctuates because some leave and some come. Some folks are relocating to family homes provided by area church members.
     If space becomes a problem at the Civic Center, the Lenlock Community Center will be opened by Anniston and can house 85 to 100 people.

From press reports:
Fort McClellan, a former army base, was removed from the active roles in years past, but much infrastructure remains. Housing has been made available to FEMA for the next two years. Two former barracks and a boiler plant are being spruced up by city personnel. Monday, Labor Day, area volunteers will be on hand to continue the cleanup process including removing brush, cleaning, and sweeping. 140 had signed up by Saturday.
     Preparations to restore water, power, and light is underway. The local Emergency Management Agency expects hundreds to participate.
