DEMCO updates power restoration efforts

GREENWELL SPRINGS, La. (BRPROUD) — DEMCO is reporting that 96% of customers have had their power restored.

Since yesterday, power has been restored to approximately 2,234 customers while 4,206 remain without power.

Outages by Parish: 

  • Ascension, 203
  • E. Baton Rouge, 6
  • E. Feliciana, 18
  • Livingston, 3,351
  • St. Helena, 313
  • Tangipahoa, 313
  • W. Feliciana, 2

“Restoration for the last 4 percent can be slow-going, due to the amount of manpower and equipment required to bring up smaller taps in very rural areas,” says David Latona, vice president of marketing and member services. “These guys are getting in the swamps and bayous – on foot, by boat, barge or pontoon – and they are giving it their all.”
