NEW ORLEANS— After residents in parts of Uptown reported a possible tornado ripping through the area, many people were without power throughout the early morning and night.
Entergy’s Vice President of Customer Service, Sandra Diggs-Miller, spoke with Sefenech Henok and Tamica Lee on Good Morning New Orleans regarding the restoration efforts.
Diggs-Miller says that as of 6:30 a.m., 3,200 customers were still without power which is down from what they believe is a peak of 10,000 customers in the dark. She says the most substantial damage was in the Carrollton area along with Algiers Point.
