Albany- Some Katrina evacuees staying in South Georgia are taking New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin's invitation to return home.

Opening tomorrow is Algiers a New Orleans suburb, the first neighborhood to welcome back residents. Theresa Alexander and a friend plan to leave early Monday morning to return to their home. While nervous about what she might find, she wants to see the damage for herself.

"A lot of areas don't get coverage and we want to see what's going on ourselves. I personally have not seen any pictures from Algiers, I've just heard them speak about it," said Theresa Alexander of Algiers.

Theresa said there is electricity in her home and they're taking plenty of food and supplies with them. They don't plan on staying in Algiers permanently due to some damage to the home's roof.
