MEMA Suggests Staying Home for New Years

Lee Smithson, the Executive Director for MEMA, stopped by the studio to discuss what you will need to know to be prepared for the cold weather coming into the Magnolia State this weekend. With the mercury dipping below freezing and potentially staying there for the majority of the New Year’s weekend, it is important to make preparations to protect yourself. He also suggested that it may not be the best idea to get out in the weather to attend New Year’s celebrations, with some parts of the state seeing temperatures in the teens or even single digits by the time the clock will strike midnight, ringing in 2018.
