City deactivates freeze plan

December 21, 2012

NEW ORLEANS, LA—The weather forecast indicates the temperature or wind chill factor in New Orleans is not expected to fall to 35 degrees or below overnight on Friday, December 21, 2012 and therefore the City's freeze plan will not be activated. 

Exposure to temperatures near freezing, combined with strong winds, for an extended period of time can cause serious medical problems.  Such weather conditions will require all individuals to seek shelter. The City's Freeze Plan goes into effect to provide temporary shelter for homeless citizens when weather conditions reach these points.

The Covenant House has advised the City that it will continue to shelter homeless citizens for the holidays when temperatures drop below 50 degrees. The Covenant House is located at 611 N. Rampart St., New Orleans, LA 70112.
