Trying to reach Dad
Theresa Gilmore, 32, of New Orleans, left, and her daughter, Shannae, 13, attempted to get through to family members Wednesday from a phone bank set up in the Ford Arena adjacent to their shelter in Beaumont, Texas. Gilmore's husband was out of town working and she had not been able to get word to him that she and their children were safe.
