No Katrina Survivors Yet in Baltimore Shelter

Hundreds of beds in the Baltimore area have been readied for families fleeing the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, but it was unclear yesterday whether anyone would take the region up on its offer.

Reggie Scriber, Baltimore's deputy commissioner of housing, said 500 beds had been set up at the Clarence H. Du Burns Arena but that no victims of the storm have arrived seeking shelter.

About 45 affected families have traveled to Baltimore, Scriber said, and are staying with relatives.

"We don't know what we're getting," Scriber said.
