NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

On the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Steve Gleason is calling on the Who Dat Nation to help Evacuteer.org light the hurricane Evacuspots in New Orleans.

During Katrina, 25,000 New Orleanians were left behind inside of the Superdome. Many couldn't leave. Ten years later, that is no longer the case. 

Today, there is a new plan. New Orleanians who need help evacuating can go to one of 17 Evacuspots, designated locations where anyone can access a free ride to safety. Each Evacuspot is marked by public art, a 14-foot statue of a person with its arm raised. Installing sculptures at the Evacuspots were originally intended to raise awareness of the new evacuation plan and its neighborhood pickup points. But, when the sun goes down, the sculptures can hardly be seen.

Gleason has started a campaign to light these Evacuspots. For details on how you can help, click here.
