New Orleans Experience Coldest Weather of the Season

Eric Connerly Data News Weekly Contributor

Across the entire State of Louisiana, freezing temperatures have brought the coldest weather of the season.

Some in the City of New Orleans and in the surrounding areas in southeast Louisiana have experienced power outages and frozen roads.

Tasha, a resident of Gentilly noted that for a short time her electricity went out, but came back on shortly after going out.

In Kenner, it was reported that after a transformer went out that several thousand people were without power.

In some instances ice accumulations have caused road closures and pipe-bursting cold temperatures through Mardi Gras Day have caused some to bypass the festivities because of both COVID-19 and the cold weather.

James, a resident of Hollygrove said that he’s kind of glad for the cold because it’s kept some people indoors during Mardi Gras and the potential of a rise in COVID-19 cases in the City.

The City asked citizens to stay at home and to not do any non-essential travel during this snap of cold weather.

“The possibility of a super spreading event like Mardi Gras has been reduced greatly because of the weather. It was good that many people took heed and are staying indoors.”
