Pyramid Refugee Center?

Just came across a rumor that the Pyramid will finally find a use: as a refugee center for roughly 5000 people displaced by Katrina. Can anyone verify this? Is it already on the news? Haven't seen it yet.

INSTANT UPDATE Just heard on the early evening news that the Mid-South Coliseum will be turned into a "special needs" refugee center for 2000 people, who are expected to begin arriving tonight. It's not viewed as a long-term solution, but an emergency response. Memphis' stature as a regional medical center will stand us in good stead.
