Dear friends and residents of District A,
Please prepare yourselves for dangerous winter conditions over the next few days. An arctic front will arrive in the New Orleans area on Tuesday and is forecasted to send temperatures to below freezing levels until Thursday morning.
All public schools and government buildings – including City Hall – will be closed until Thursday. All of our first responders will be on duty during this time.
There could be ¼ inch of ice, and possibly snow, on the roads. PLEASE stay off the roads unless it is absolutely necessary for you to drive. The City will begin laying sand on elevated roadways at 4 a.m. Tuesday. That work could cause closures in the area. Non-elevated roadways will not be salted or sanded.
Some areas could see power outages lasting three to five days. Please call 1-800-Entergy to report any outages.
The Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport reports that airlines are canceling most, if not all, flights Tuesday. They have not released any information on the status of flights Wednesday. Please contact your airline for updated flight information.
Transportation officials are already preparing de-icing procedures to begin Tuesday night, and major highways could be closed if they become too dangerous. Mayor Landrieu also warned residents not to leave their cars parked under trees, especially those with large limbs.
Streetcar service will be cancelled Tuesday and Wednesday, replaced by buses that will run citywide unless/until the roads are deemed too unsafe.
There will be no garbage or recycling pick-up Tuesday or Wednesday. Services will resume on your next scheduled pick-up day.
Call 9-1-1 to report an emergency or 3-1-1 for any other issues.
Check in at www.nola.ready.gov for updated information and/or to sign up to have emergency alerts sent to your phone.
Please be careful and check on elderly neighbors and those with special needs!
