The following has been released to Q93 from Cleco:
PINEVILLE, La. – Jan. 12, 2021 – As of 8:30 a.m., Cleco had restored power to approximately
5,100 of the 5,300 customers who lost power after a mix of ice and snow moved through north
and central Louisiana.
“The remaining customers without power are expected to have power today if they can receive
power,” said James Lass, director of distribution operations and emergency management. “If
there is any damage to your home, business or to the electrical service entrance that may pose
a danger if power is restored, Cleco cannot energize the service until repairs are made by a
licensed electrician. Once repairs are made, the electrician should call the appropriate
governing authority for instructions regarding permitting and inspections.”
