Watching Hurricane Rita
Emergency workers look out the windows of the Entergy Building during Hurricane Rita in Beaumont on Friday, Sept. 23, 2005. The Entergy Building was constructed to withstand a Category 5 hurricane and has a back-up generator system. Entergy allows Jefferson County officials to use portions of the building during disasters to safeguard personnel and coordinate emergency services.
