BATON ROUGE, La. – Wintry weather and possibly dangerous road conditions are expected in Louisiana tonight through Friday morning.

Here are some winter safety tips for Louisianans living in FEMA temporary housing units:

  • Should local officials recommend manufactured housing occupants find sturdier shelter, evacuate immediately. Be sure to take pets with you.
  • Survivors living in travel trailers must leave the trailer in place.
  • To help stay warm, wear layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing and a hat.
  • Follow guidelines from the state and FEMA:
    • Conserve propane use prior to cold temperatures.
    • Call the FEMA contracted emergency maintenance number for service if there is a problem with the unit.
      • Maintenance service calls may be delayed by hazardous conditions on roadways.
