OPELOUSAS -- St. Landry Parish Government continues preparations for the winter weather approaching the parish over the next few days.

Parish President Jessie Bellard announced today that the parish would open a shelter at the Yambilee Building for residents without heat. The shelter will open at noon Sunday, February 14.

In addition to the shelter opening, the parish will have road crews on standby during the storm to clear downed limbs and trees and spread de-icing material on frozen bridges and roadways.
