Cleco reports about 15,000 customers without power as of Saturday morning, most of them in St. Tammany. As of early Saturday morning, about 75% of customers with outages had been restored, according to Cleco.
From the Washington-St. Tammany Co-op website: THere are approximately 1700 accounts currently without power. Power has been restored to all WST’s major circuits. Now that power is available on all the main distribution lines, crews are making repairs to smaller branch circuits. There are hundreds of linemen and right of way workers from Louisiana, Alabama, Texas, Missouri and South Carolina working along with WST employees. We have some lines that are inaccessible because of high water. It is our current expectation that power will be restored to all members by approximately Monday, September 3rd. WST and other cooperative crews as well as contractors are currently making repairs to lines in all portions of the system which are not inaccessible due to high water. Crews are working form 5 A.M. to 9 P.M and using the period between 9 P.M. and 5 A.M. for meals and sleeping.
