NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — On Monday morning, a massive power outage left several thousand in the dark.
Both residential buildings and businesses in the CBD are going on three hours without power. As of 11 a.m., there were still more than 6,000 customers affected by this outage.
Entergy New Orleans posted on social media that they believe the outage was caused by ‘an animal coming into contact with equipment at one of our substations.’
However by 5 p.m. power had been fully restored.
