Stay tuned to your local media for updates on weather and schools in your area.

Due to the accumulation of ice in many portions of Northern Mississippi, motorists should expect icy conditions and remember to use extreme caution on roads and overpasses if they are traveling in areas experiencing winter weather, as slick or icy spots are developing.

Ice accumulation could also bring down trees and power lines.  If you encounter any downed power lines, always treat them as if they are live, and report them to your power company or call 9-1-1.

Residents are also encouraged to check on elderly and at-risk neighbors and relatives due to the increased potential for power outages and temperatures dropping well below freezing.  Make sure they have a safe, warm place to stay while the conditions remain cold and hazardous.

In addition to the threat of winter weather, heavy rain and thunderstorms are moving through the state causing local flooding of already swollen creeks and rivers.  Residents should never drive through flooded roadways and look for an alternate route.

Some counties received more than six inches of rain last week, which raises the concern of additional flooding, downed trees and power lines and the possibility of mudslides due to saturated soil.

MEMA urges the public to report damages to your local Emergency Management Agency. For a list of contact numbers for your county, visit www.msema.org/local-ema.
