The Jefferson Parish staging center Saturday prepares for bringing back evacuees who had no access to transportation and were transported to shelters out of the area by buses.

The staging center was set up in the giant parking lot of a multi-screen theater in River Ridge.
Now the anxious waiting starts to see if another evacuation will be ordered this week for the New Orleans area as Hurricane Ike heads into the Gulf of Mexico.
Fears are that people are evacuation weary and many may choose to ride out what could be a major hurricane.
