Some motels still booked

August 30, 2005

Valdosta - Hurricane evacuees checked out of their motels in Valdosta Tuesday morning, but some places are still booked through the weekend.

The Thiel family wanted to head home to New Orleans, but they don't know if the roads are passable, or if they'll have a home to return to. They're staying at the Quality Inn Tuesday, but since they're aren't any vacancies after Wednesday, they'll have to start looking for another room.

"We're trying to figure out what's going on so we can get home, how to get there, what roads to use that are open," said Juliette Thiel.

The Thiel family hasn't been able to contact family or friends to find out what kind of damage their home received. They fear it could be underwater.
