As winds diminish, electric companies will look to work on power outages today
NEW ORLEANS – The weather has yet to hit ideal, but with sustained winds dropping in the Acadiana, residents may soon start finding out just how long they will be without electricity.
Entergy announced earlier this morning that as of 7 a.m. its crews would be out to access the damage in the areas without electricity.
Other utility companies will follow suit as the winds subside and Isaac continues to move out of the area and weaken.
As of this morning 47 percent of the state, or over 900,000, were without power in Louisiana.
As of the latest advisory, 7 a.m. CDT, Tropical Storm Isaac was located at 31.1 N, 91.8 W. Isaac, as it made its way across Avoyelles Parish, continued to travel northwest at 8 mph.
