Officials at Entergy and DEMCO say they are working to restore power to thousands of customers in Southern Louisiana.

Monday's major winter storm caused outages to thousands of homes and businesses in several parishes, including East Baton Rouge, Livingston and Ascension parishes.

Local leaders are urging people to stay home unless absolutely necessary, as the sleet and ice have made roads treacherous.
