The NWS Lake Charles & Calcasieu OEP New Graphical Shelter-in-Place Press Conference (7/10/02)

Instead of the old, confusing system in which boundaries for the shelter-in-place were defined by roads or natural boundaries (sometimes not so well known), the new system uses predefined zones based on well known boundaries.  Residents of the area can use the maps to determine which zone they live or work in ahead of time, allowing them to instantly know whether the shelter-in-place is in effect for them.
