Crews were at this location since 2 a.m. and have isolated the area around where the large wire is down. Entergy said a section of the electrical system was temporarily deenergized.

According to Entergy, “The location and type of wire involved makes it a complex job.”

Entergy is predicting that power will be restored around noon on Wednesday.

At this time, it is not known how the power line ended up on the ground.
