Assumption Parish Sheriff Mike Waguespack is reporting widespread road and highway icing at this time in Assumption Parish. Individuals are strongly recommended to remain at home and to stay off of the roads. We expect these conditions to remain like this and prevent any significant thawing.
If you must drive, please follow these safety tips:
- Do not attempt to pass other vehicles and leave plenty of space between vehicles in front and behind you.
- When crossing a bridge, travel at a slow speed breaking gently and only when necessary.
If you need assistance, the Sheriff's Office will respond but please remain off the roads.
