Missouri’s efforts to help victims of Hurricane Katrina are being stepped up. A shelter will be opened within the confines of Lambert Airport in St. Louis. It will house up to two-thousand refugees from the storm-ravaged areas. Governor Matt Blunt is also considering a second shelter in Kansas City, and a medical triage center at the airport in Cape Girardeau. The St. Louis shelter is expected to be up and running this coming Thursday. Employees from the State Departments of Health, Social Services, and Mental Health will be on site to provide assistance.
