Evacuating Orleans prison

Times-Pic has an article about evacuating all 7100 inmates from the Orleans prison. Prisoners included convicts as well as those held on misdemeanors and those awaiting bond hearings. All went 4 days without power or water and as much as 10 feet of water had made its way into the facility. DPSC secretary Richard Stalder is quoted as saying, "Some [of the prisoners] have assured me they will never be late on child support payments again."
