The National Weather Service says moderate to brief heavy sleet and snow is beginning to move across central Louisiana, leading to accumulations and hazardous driving conditions.

Entergy Louisiana crews remain ready to respond to outages that may occur as temperatures continue to drop and conditions worsen. Deteriorating road conditions may hamper power restoration as it may take longer for crews to respond.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation gives updates on road conditions and urges residents to check 511la.org before traveling.

Customers should continue to take all winter weather precautions and keep safety at the forefront. Remember, never use an oven or stove top to heat your home. Also, use space heaters appropriately and safely. You can find additional safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association here.

Remember, winds associated with the winter blast and snow and ice formations can damage electrical equipment. The extra weight of snow and ice on power lines and trees can make them snap. In either case, power can be interrupted and you should be prepared for any possible outages.
