Freeze warning overnight for some Louisiana Parishes

The National Weather Service calls an overnight freeze warning across south Mississippi and in four Louisiana parishes.

Louisiana strawberry farmers are putting covers over plants to protect them. One south Mississippi farmer said his crops aren't yet planted.

Meteorologist Ryan Davidson says people should expect four or five hours of temperatures that can kill crops and other sensitive vegetation overnight. Animals should also get extra protection or be brought inside if possible.

The freeze is predicted to start after midnight and continue until 7am on Sunday.

In Mississippi, the warning covers Wilkinson to Walthall counties and Pearl River to George counties south - except for places right on the coast - and north into Perry, Green and Wayne counties.

In Louisiana, it affects East Feliciana, St. Helena, Washington, St. Tammany, and Tangipahoa parishes.
