According to Scott McCloud, spokesman for SWEPCO, power has been restored to more than 61,000 customers.

 

With the addition of 329 outside personnel (linemen, service and tree), along with other SWEPCO crews from a five state area who made their way to the River Cities, estimated time for restoring power has improved substantially from the initial estimate of 5 p.m. Monday.

 

The new estimated time for restoring power to 95% of all customers who can take power is 5 p.m. today for Bossier Cit
