Power Outage Update

Friday, September 9, 2011 - 5:45 PM

Entergy continues to restore electricity in LaPlace and anticipates restoring service to customers north of Airline Highway by the end of today. Electricity may not be restored to customers south of Airline Highway until tomorrow. 

The Utilities Department has arranged a schedule for crews to monitor generators through the night and the morning with expectations of having the wastewater system back on power tomorrow.

As a result of the power outages, St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office will also be making extra patrols throughout the night in areas with no electrical service.  Temporary stop signs have been placed at intersections where traffic signals are not working due to the power outage. Drivers should proceed cautiously when driving through these intersections.
