Ice Storm 2021

Ice covers the tops of trees and gravel in Denham Springs during a winter storm event on Monday, Feb. 15, 2021.

Dozens of roads in Livingston parish remain closed or affected from Monday’s ice storm that swept through south Louisiana and knocked out power for thousands.

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office released an updated list of road closures Tuesday morning and urged people to avoid traveling if possible. 

Though the dusk-to-dawn curfew has been lifted, Livingston Parish remains under a state of emergency.

“If you don’t have to be out, please stay off of the roadways,” read an LPSO social media post. “We are continuing to work with our partners to address several issues across the parish.”
