NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Another night of icy weather means one more day of government offices and school closures in parts of Louisiana.
State government was to be closed Thursday in 23 parishes. And at least 18 school districts were expected to remain closed.
Most of the state was under another hard freeze warning overnight. And motorists were advised to be alert for possible lingering patches of ice from the cold, wet weather of the last couple of days.
Although most major roads were being re-opened, the cold meant another night of road closures in some areas, including parts of Interstate 10.
The Lake Pontchartrain Causeway opened only briefly Wednesday. Officials hoped to re-open it Thursday.
In New Orleans, where cancelled flights stranded numerous tourists, flights were expected to fully resume Thursday.
