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.
