Local News

Entergy Louisiana said that repairs were completed and power was restored at 10:31 p.m.

BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – Entergy Louisiana announced a power outage in East Baton Rouge Parish on Saturday.

David Freese, a spokesperson for Entergy Louisiana, said the outage is affecting approximately 5,500 customers in EBR.

“A utility pole was broken due to public-inflicted damage — a vehicle hit a pole. Crews are working quickly and safely to perform field switching to bring some of the approximately 5,500 affected customers back online. However, some customers may remain out until the pole is replaced and repairs are made. I currently do not have an estimated time of restoration.”
