With a forecast calling for extremely cold temperatures and the possibility of frozen precipitation this week, Tangipahoa Parish President Robby Miller and Tangipahoa Parish Government’s Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness are closely monitoring the weather and encourage the public to do so, as well.

Miller said his office is working in close contact with the National Weather Service and will continue to monitor the situation throughout the next 36 hours. While the worst conditions are expected on the Parish’s far north end, parish leaders are taking precautions. Tangipahoa Parish Road and Bridge crews are on standby. Miller said if conditions warrant, crews will begin sanding roadways starting on the extreme north end before daylight Tuesday morning. Parish leaders are encouraging the public to make preparations today in advance of the weather system which is expected to arrive in our area late tonight and early Tuesday morning.

Miller encourages the public to make preparations by protecting the 4P’s—people, pets, pipes, and plants.
