Saturday, February 9, 2013 – 11:30 a.m.
ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST PARISH – Due to the forecast of potential severe weather, the start of the Krewe Du Monde Parade scheduled for 12:00 noon on Sunday, February 10, has been moved to 11:00 a.m. pending weather conditions. The decision was made by St. John Parish Officials in conjunction with the St. John Parish Sheriff’s Office and a Krewe Du Monde representative.
Severe thunderstorms are expected to develop across the area Sunday afternoon and evening as a result of a cold front moving across the region. Damaging winds, large hail, isolated tornados, lightning and localized flooding will be the main threats during the weather event. Residents should use caution when going outside and when on roads. The St. John Parish Emergency Operations Center is monitoring weather forecasts for any changes.
Please stay tuned for parade updates.
