Mayor Melvin "Kip" Holden has encouraged his appointed department heads to allow their non-essential employees to leave work now because of the possibility of severe weather.

"I strongly encourage my non-essential employees with children to pick them up early in order to be home prior to the arrival of this severe weather system," Mayor Holden said.    

Also, the East Baton Rouge Parish school system has cancelled some of its after school programs.

Much of the WAFB Channel 9 viewing area is under a tornado watch until 7pm, meaning that conditions are favorable for the formation of tornadoes.
