News

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD)– Hundreds of Baton Rouge residents are on day five of having no electricity on Friday night according to an 11:30 p.m. update from Entergy.

Residents in the Innisworld subdivision off of Jefferson Highway say they have not been included on the map of outages and were concerned Friday they would get skipped by restoration trucks.

Entergy released a statement advising those without power, not on the map as an area of reported outages to contact the company. “We had to call the public service commission and we were afraid we were going to be forgotten,” resident Jim Lamy said.

Residents near the Innisworld Road, Oliphant Road and Floynell Drive area had power restored on Friday evening.
