The Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) has opened a Reception Center at the Alexandria MegaShelter for Hurricane Laura evacuees seeking shelter. The Reception Center at Shrine on Airline / Zephyr Field has now closed. Evacuees in need of shelter must go to the reception center to be placed in a non-congregate shelter as one becomes available. Anyone who arrives directly at a hotel will not be admitted and will be required to go to the reception center. The reception center will be open 24/7 until further notice. Find it at Alexandria MegaShelter, 8125 Hwy 71 South.
