Morgan City, LA – Chief Chad M. Adams of the Morgan City Police Department alerts residents of the forthcoming freezing temperatures on January 15th and 16th. As the cold weather approaches, now is the time for citizens to make necessary preparations.

Residents are advised to insulate exposed pipes, inspect and test their heating systems, and ensure the safety of their pets by bringing them indoors during this period. For those using gas heaters or other gas sources to warm their homes, it is important to check and test Carbon Monoxide Detectors.

Chief Adams said the department stays in regular contact with the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), which is committed to maintaining the accessibility of the US 90 Bridge. The Morgan City Police Department will supervise roads and bridges, reporting any ice accumulation to the DOTD in an effort to prevent closures.

The police urge residents, if possible, to stay home and avoid traveling during this cold weather event. If venturing outside is necessary, please dress appropriately for the frigid temperatures and exercise caution due to potential icy road conditions. Note that bridges tend to freeze before roads do. Report any hazardous icy conditions to the Morgan City Police Department at (985) 380-4605.
